i prefer chromium. the flash crashes sometimes but its very lightweight and fast. it can also use the chrome ad-ons that dont work for the normal chrome for mac like ad-block

Seems like the use of a flash blocker is a sound idea. How do I do that in Opera?

I have taken to using a Flash Blocker, great idea, if there's flash I want to see, I just Ok it and I'm away. The worst type of flash is the repeating type (from my experience) the type that just keeps looping over and over with some mindless ad.

I love No Script + Ad Blocker Plus for Firefox. No ads of any kind + no flash ads. ^
