    I had a SBBOD Flash crash earlier (had ClicktoFlash disabled for some reason) on a flash heavy site that caused by to have to Force Quit Safari. I had AdBlock running at the time and pondered whether it was that causing the issue, on top of the flash? Switched back to Glimmerblocker and I can't seem to get it to do what it did earlier, so am I right in thinking AdBlock is causing Safari to act a little weird (read: slower) or was it just coincidence?

    Blocking Flash increase stability.

    Adblock decrease stability. First versions use to crash a lot. (version 2.1.4 is okay).
    GlimmerBlocker is awesome. It is configurable and damn stable.

    If you want stability use GlimmerBlocker with Click2Flash (I prefer Flashless).
