    Your Mac was just getting back at you for watching a video about the Microsoft Zune. J/K.

    No really, flash sucks. I recommend ClicktoFlash. It disables flash automagically and can automatically watch youtube videos in h.264 so your CPU won't die of a heart attack.

    Consider yourself lucky. In OS versions before SL, the Flash plugin would have crashed Safari completely. Now in SL it's walled off from the rest of Safari. Maybe if enough users see just how often Flash crashes, they will bang on Adobe door to write a better plugin.

    I found yet another company that doesn't seem to understand that if you're selling a product, don't lock out visitors who can't view Adobe Flash content. I saw what looked like an old option for text-only accessibility, but it now forces the user back to the Flash-only pages.

    "This Web site requires Adobe Flash Player 9.0.124 or higher to display properly. Please download and install it here. Then refresh this page to try again."

    The Adobe Flash performance was so bad in its waste of bandwidth and CPU cycles that it was banned by IT policy. Likewise, my phone can't view non-standard Websites because it only understands HTML and other text-based formats. This means that anyone trying to convert HTML to Flash will not be able to deliver their content to me.

    Maybe I will try this ClicktoFlash software.

    I have never had problems with Flash....this thread's got me really confused. :confused: Although I hate websites that are done in Flash, because they eat up network bandwidth.
