    Steve already printed this story out and framed multiple copies of it on his walls.

    I installed Click to Flash 2-3 weeks ago, NOT ONE SAFARI CRASH since then. Coincidence? lol. I don't understand why Flash SUCKS on Macs, but it does.

    Nice username BTW. Are you going to change it next year?

    I don't understand it either, but Flash does need to die a quick, painful death.

    After all these years, u would think they get it optimized, everytime i run a flash base game on my computer, the cpu would jump, doesnt matter if its mac or pc....flash sucks!

    That picture is great (and so is the video)! Also, this move was entirely predictable. Better Adobe add compatibility to its platform than become entirely irrelevant.

    I never had any issues with Flash on my
    - Nexus One
    - Dell XPS 1340
    - Google CR-48, running CrOS and Ubuntu 10.10
    - Some 3 years old Dell Vostro laptop
    - Sister's Fujitsu laptop
    - 6 years old PC desktop

    but I do noticed some random freezes when streaming Flash videos on my 2010 MBP. Happens to my girlfriend's 2009 MBP as well. Oh and Flash doesn't play at all on our iPhone 4s.
    Coincidence? :rolleyes:
