    Flash isn't choppy.

    It just uses a lot of CPU cycles and can cause the fans to ramp up to full speed.

    Flash is bad on Macs, but it's not that bad. From my experience, you won't struggle at all on a Alu MacBook, the contention being it shouldn't take half that much power to play a flash video without struggling (my white Macbook, older model, plays flash without stuttering or any other issues, but the fans spin up something fierce).

    Alright, thank you.

    So, would you, or would you not recommend the plug-in I provided?

    Give it a shot, if it works well for you, then keep using it.
