    Has anyone tried the flash plugin on the new 13" MBP?

    I have tried it, and though it seems like it's working (no fan whirr) I'm not sure. I do not see any white square. Can anyone share their experiences?

    I downloaded it, it seems to work. I don't see a white square either
    I watched this video:-
    Before the update it used about 30-35% of my CPU
    After the update it uses 15-20% of my CPU
    (looking at the User figure in iStat Pro)

    Forget about flash. Get rid of it and watch all of your online videos in HTML 5.

    I downloaded and installed yesterday. Seems to be working and I do have the white square. Tested it with a 45 minute Hulu video last night and saw much lower temps that normal. Side effect has been some strange behavior from ads on certain websites. They work, but not quite right.

    If this were easy I'd be on board in 0.5 seconds :)

    I'm signed up on YouTube for the HTML5 beta thing, but outside of that what else can you do? (Besides uninstall Flash ;))
