Editors' review

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.

    "Exactly what I wanted!"

    October 16, 2008   |   By Dr_Snooz

    Version: jTFlashManager 1.1

    Pros

    - Once configured, exceptionally easy to use, one-click operation
    - Can be turned on or off at any time
    - Very small and effective
    - FREE!!

    Cons

    - Difficult to set up
    - Auto-scan for Flash doesn't work

    Summary

    This little, tiny, fast, free utility is EXACTLY what I hoped for: a very simple way to turn off Flash's incessant CPU-hogging, computer-parking insensitivity. Though it is difficult to set up initially, it is worth the effort. The interface is very simple. There are two buttons, one to turn Flash off and one to turn it back on. That's it and it's PERFECT!

    Thanks!

    "Simple and works well!"

    March 07, 2008   |   By grumblebee

    Version: jTFlashManager 1.1

    Pros

    This is a godsend. It's a simple, no frills utility that does exactly what its supposed to.

    no longer will I have to put up with annoying and obnoxious flashing ads and animations. And, if by chance, there is a website that uses flash and I want to see it I can easily turn it back on.

    Highly recommended.
