I did this, but I'd like to see the response. And I'm not talking about the iPhone, iPod touch, etc…
I use ClickToFlash, and video sites aside, I don't really miss it.
So you didn't last very long I guess.
A trillion years to infinity?
I've lasted ever since Click To Flash came out. I don't miss it one bit - in fact I get annoyed at work when I have flash adverts everywhere.
I couldn't use it for an hour without flash. And the wife would be pissed if\
she couldn't play farmtown or mafia wars.
C2F is peace of mind, but how often did you have to enable flash?
Have you tried?
I think the only thing I would miss would be my wordpress blog stats.
How long can you last without Real Player being supported in Snow Leopard?
I use real player all the time. Sometimes I listen to a talk radio stream and listen to music on itunes at the same time
I am three trillion years old and so far no problems.
I use GlimmerBlocker for ads and CLick2Flash to block flash.
Flash is widely used but it's losing ground (source: Daring Fireball).
I know many people can't live without it but it's a matter of waiting for developers to stop using flash.
Before Flash was used mostly to show an ugly and stupid presentation to enter a website. It got widely used when websites started the video format wars. You had quicktime, realplayer, vmw...
At that time most people used Desktops and videos where small resolution. Nobody knew/cared about optimization/cpu consumption. Today notebooks are more used and battery life is important.
New technologies are arriving to substitute Flash. They are better and exist now. You just have to wait for developers to adapt. Youtube and Vimeo are already pushing html5 in their videos, so we should expect for other big and small websites to follow.
Flash video is dying SOON. What about games? That's another story.
isn't clicktoflash a solution that they should use, then? give people the choice.....
it's funny how I was listening to Leo Laporte saying the same thing about flash, but all of his live streams are based on flash
Flash sucks, so click to flash does not make it suck any less.
That is like should we let our kids use drugs. No we should not let them do drugs, unless they want to use drugs, and in that case we should then let them use drugs.
i'd like to say something, but the bant hammer will come down on me
depends how old they are. kids drink alcohol in some countries. kids take pharmaceuticals for medicinal purposes.
I suppose you're trying to make some kind of point. Well done. I'll be happy when Flash has gone the way of IE6. If the increase in the number of devices like the iPad that do not support Flash hastens its demise, I'm all for it.
You mean widely used, widely supported, and a requirement for lots of enterprise and in house/custom software, much to the despiar of sys admins everywhere?
I'm just saying if the content is what you wanted, you didn't care that it was flash....or you wouldn't have used it.
I don't like flash....it hits my CPU hard, but there are times where I don't mind. I'm watching TWIT live right now.
IE6's market share has been in freefall for ages, which is why companies like Google are happy to abandon support for it:
Actually, I do care and I will continue to advocate the use of better alternatives.
I agree. I would also like to get the content that I need to get rather than waiting for the switch. I'm hoping everyone switches to HTML5 right now, but I still need a way to get to those that don't.
I use ClickToFlash however, almost all websites I go to have flash including this forum. On most of the sites I frequent I have to allow certain segments to the white list because they are important to me. Its such a pain.
