"this little add-on is absolutely brilliant. top marks"

December 22, 2010  |  By r2wtrials

 |  Version: ClickToFlash 1.6b9

Pros

I am running osx 10.6.5 and safari 5.03 and it does exactly what it says on the tin. No flash adds or videos have got past it and viewing them is painless if i want to. One click on a youtube or vimeo video and it plays spot on.

Cons

No cons really, it took two safari restarts to kick in for some reason but other than that perfect so far.

Summary

Easy to load and configure, very good in operation and allows you to view anything you want in one click. Ideal.

"Best WebKit plugin ever!"

September 09, 2010  |  By CyberSkull

 |  Version: ClickToFlash 1.6b9

Pros

Blocks Flash! :D

Cons

None, really.

Summary

ClickToFlash makes surfing in any WebKit based browser (Safari, Chrome, Vienna, Shiira, RealPlayer, etc.) a far more pleasant experience. Flash only loads when I bid it to, speeding up my surfing and blocking those annoying auto-playing video ads. Since I have installed it I have had fewer browser crashes (usually only when I have had to enable a flash movie) and my system performance is much better.

I just can't recommend this enough!

"Safari now super fast!"

July 02, 2010  |  By deopsy

 |  Version: ClickToFlash 1.6b9

Pros

Safari's performance improved dramatically after installing ClickToFlash. Web pages now load like lightning strikes! Simple, elegant and very effective.

Cons

None. This really is a perfectly rendered piece of software.

Summary

Simple, elegant and very effective. With Steve Jobs' very public opinion on Flash (he makes a compelling argument), perhaps Click2Flash should be incorporated into a future version of Safari.

Pros

ClickToFlash 1.6b9 enhances my web experience by blocking Flash apps which happen to mostly annoying ads. If I want to access a Flash function I just click the icon and activate it. Sweet!

Cons

No negatives yet.

"Absolutely outstanding!"

March 04, 2010  |  By Felix01

 |  Version: ClickToFlash 1.6b6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
A superb piece of coding. Results in greatly increased laptop battery life between charges, lowered fan noise, lower running temps and is a very effective ad blocker as well (many, many of the obnoxious web page advertisements are .swf Flash files).

Yet all it takes is one click (on the word "Flash") to quickly load any .swf file you actually want to view. And then the Flash plug-in reverts to a dormant state awaiting the the next time you really want to view Flash content.

Ingenious. Highly recommended.

If I had one minor suggestion, it would be that ClickToFlash would actually quit the Flash plug-in PID after the "clicked-on" .swf file is loaded. But that's nit picking. The plug-in uses negligible resources when it's sitting in a dormant state after first use, awaiting the call to further action.

"Met Player works now"

February 25, 2010  |  By jamesn20012001

 |  Version: ClickToFlash 1.5.3b4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
At a suggestion from ClickForFlash I tried opening the preferences and "White Listing" the Met Player website. This removes all Flash blocking from the page and Met Player operates properly now.

It's great to be able to block the intrusive Flash advertising on many websites. One of my local newspapers actually started to make me nauseous with the many constantly bouncing and gyrating Flash advertisements that had to be endured to read the news. That's over now.


The documentation could be made a little more explicit for newbies like myself but the application itself seems to work really well.
