    Ever since the announcement of the iPad, and Steve Jobs saying that Flash is no good, many flash sights have crashed when I use Safari on my MacBook. This never happened before but happens about 10 times a day now. Is Apple trying to make Flash look bad? I have never had Flash on Safari crash so often.

    What specific sites are you talking about?

    What Mac and what Mac OS X and what Safari version do you use?

    I'm on the latest Mac OS X and Safari version, and no Flash crashes, but I also use Click2Flash to disable most Flash content and only the ones I want to look at can be activated by me.

    I'm using the latest versions of Snow Leopard and Safari. It has been happening on Facebook a lot, but some other sights as well. The strange thing is that it did not start until after the public disagreements about the iPad between Adobe and Apple. I love Apple and agree with it; I just think it's a strange coincidence, or maybe I just never noticed it before.

    What about resetting Safari or repairing permissions via Disk utility?

    Apple don't write the Flash plugin on your Mac. Adobe do. So if anyone is sabotaging it the it's Adobe...
