    What exactly does this do? I just realized it has been turned off since I got my 3GS. Have I been missing out on anything while surfing the internet?

    Yes, I read that as well but wanted to know the specifics or at least an example of what the phone could be viewing or seeing with the plug-in enabled.

    Aside from the Excel and Word files, apparently it won't play quicktime videos with the plug-ins turned off. Go to apple.com/trailers as an example.

    It's under Settings -> Safari -> Plug-Ins

    Anything but native HTML.

    PDF files, iWork files, Office files (Word), Quicktime AV formats.

    Those are all plugins. I'm sure i'm missing some too.

    Thanks, I'll try that out with it turned off and then turned on. Does this mean the videos won't show up as little blue boxes anymore?

    Most will probably still show up as blue boxes because they're most likely flash videos.
