    So it looks like Safari in 10.9 works like "click to flash"? So I have to click to click on flash elements like videos on youtube to get them to play.

    So can I do without "Click to Flash" in 10.9? :confused:

    Yes, there is no need for it in 10.9. It does not disable all flash, just flash that Safari does not think you are viewing, like ads on the side bars, etc.

    If I were you, I'd start using "Click to Plugin" to turn YouTube videos into HTML5 videos that are no longer flash.

    1) This is not exactly like click to flash. Safari's feature only stops flash plugins that reside in side/top-bar areas where ads are often placed.

    2) You can disable this feature in Safari's preferences if you are not pleased with the way it preforms. (uncheck Stop plug-ins to save power)

    How is this different to what click to flash does?

    I suppose it's not much different, aside from the whole "disabling other plugins" thing. I thought the "click to flash" plugin was similar to the one on Chrome, but apparently I'm mistaken.

    No problem.

    Kind of shocked to see someday agree with me about Microsoft in any way, though. ;)
