    Yes, since Flash consumes more system resources, and therefore, battery power, ClickToFlash conserves both.

    I would venture to say that most MR members here use ClickToFlash or similar plugin to mitigate Flash.

    It's a great piece of software.

    Apparently flash 10.2 uses very little CPU but it's still in beta.

    Yeah, I'm on the beta now, and while it's better, it's still much worse than straight up HTML5 video.

    Only looks like about 10% on some YouTube videos.
