    I know this is in the forum about click to flash, but.....

    I don't like to install extra software on my Mac, but today Flash ticked me off for the last time. I was browsing a non-video intensive site. Only small ads were on the page. My CPU usage shot to over 50% while I was reading the page. Fired up system usage and there is flash using 49% of my resources. My fans shot up to 3000. So, I try to install an old version of click to flash and when that does not work, I Google and find I can simply use the add on feature of Safari.

    This is amazing. Why haven't I done this sooner. I cannot relate how awesome it is to be able to turn off flash and browse without any lag!!!

    If you are not using Click to Flash, give it a whirl. It Rocks!:)

    If you used the extension, go to Safari > Extensions. If you installed the plugin, Safari > ClickToFlash.

    I did the same thing. Old version I tried to install from zip file from the click to flash web site. When I could not find it, I Googled and found out you install it from the Safari add-on option within Safari. Works great. i am not sure if the first install that i did caused any problems.

    Is there anything I should to do remove it or check?

    Thanks
