    Do most install flash for safari/firefox or just use chrome?

    Many do use Flash on Safari and Firefox. For Flash-related issues:
    • Find your Flash version and make sure it's the latest version available. Never install or update Flash from a pop-up on a website. Always go to Adobe's site to get Flash or updates.
    • Install ClickToFlash (Safari), Flashblock (Firefox) or FlashBlock (Chrome) to control which Flash content plays on websites.
    • Try using the YouTube HTML5 Video Player to watch YouTube videos, when available. (May impact fullscreen viewing. See link for details.) As far as performance impact, YMMV.

    I personally feel like I get a better experience leaving flash completely off Safari and just using Chrome when I absolutely need to see something with flash.

    Chrome essentially sandboxes flash so you get that security benefit and I find click to flash annoying so I don't have to deal with that.

    I do the same thing. By using Safari without Flash installed many sites that otherwise use Flash will detect you do not have Flash installed then serve up a HTML5 version instead. Much better.

    Sounds like its not needed. I'll just stick to Chrome and use a flash app for it.
