    Not me! I have Chrome for any situations where I absolutely have to use it, but I’ve had the same setup on my iMac (and Mac Pro at work) for at least a year now. So I’m used to it.

    Well my work is all in Adobe Flash Pro.

    So yes, I will have flash installed.

    the first thing I install on any OS is Chrome, so i guess immediately ;)

    I haven't installed it yet. I've been thinking of leaving it out until I need it for some reason and then perhaps turning to Chrome and just leaving it out.

    I did install Click2Flash out of habit, though.

    With a few Safari Extensions (YouTube5 foremost among them), and judicious use of the Develop menu to change the user agent to iPad (to get sites to serve up HTML5 video that offer it), I avoid a lot of the Flash usage on the web.

    Yes, but it’s self-contained, rather than being a system-wide plugin. And I ONLY use Chrome in situations where a site requires Flash for functionality (through the Develop Menu’s “Open Page With” submenu). The rest of the time I’m browsing in a Flash-less Safari, which I prefer to Chrome anyway.

    Chrome gave me a lot of problems with freezing up the entire computer. Since I quit using Chrome, *knock on wood* my new Pro is perfect.

    I don't believe in installing stuff that's redundant or unnecessary, so no.

    1) with click to flash installed is the battery life as good as a macbook without flash installed (when not using flash)

    2) have the chrome problems been solved?

    i installed flash on my rmbp and the battery life took a huge hit. i am hoping click to flash solves the problems.

    Installed right away. Like it or not, Flash remains in widespread use. As for battery life, whatever Apple's claims - 2 hours.
