ClickToPlugin for Mac

Editors' Review

by   / March 03, 2013

Everyone loves surfing the Web, but most people do not enjoy intrusive ads. The ClickToFlash for Mac plug-in makes your browsing experience more fluid and less distracting, but does not compromise content accessibility.

Once installed, ClickToFlash for Mac will automatically prevent Flash content from loading and try to convert it to a HTML5 equivalent. The installation part can't be easier, as it takes one click to install this plug-in. Don't get scared by the preference panel that pops up on your first use, as you don't need to understand all the seemingly confusing terms and options. If you wish to set up special conditional rules for certain Web sites and want to override the default behavior of the plug-in, this is where you have to go. Typically, this plug-in replaces media elements such as banners, ads, and videos with an unobtrusive placeholder stating "HTML5" or "Flash," making your browsing experience more fluid and less distracting. Simply click the placeholder to load the content if you want to access it. As a bonus, you can now download videos with one click. Another highlight Mac users will appreciate in this plug-in is the added support for AirPlay.

Simple to install and use, yet allowing enough customization options for advanced users, the ClickToFlash for Mac plug-in should fit the bill whether you are a hard-core Web surfer or casual reader who doesn't like to be distracted by many eye-catching ads.
