This no-frills application prevents Flash objects from appearing during Web surfing, but you'll need to have some familiarity with plug-ins to fully reap the benefits of jTFlashManager.
Its tiny but straightforward interface has two clearly marked buttons to turn the Flash plug-in on and off. The File menu is equally simple, with options to find plug-ins and to toggle between different browsers and plug-ins.
Although the publisher gives helpful advice about the location of the necessary files and suggests naming conventions, novice users might not feel comfortable renaming files as suggested. That said, the program effectively blocked Flash objects in our tests, including movies and games.
jTFlashManager supports popular browsers like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Netscape, and it worked equally well with each, but IE users will find they can't turn Flash plug-ins off without closing browser windows. For intermediate users and above, jTFlashManager is an inexpensive way to streamline the Web browsing experience.
Most browsers do not allow for the Flash plug-in to be turned on and off. Instead, you're asked to delete the plugin. jTFlashManager gives you the capability to turn Flash on and off for all of your browsers. Browse with Flash turned off, and turn it on only for animations you wish to see.
Version 1.1 is a bug fixing release.
