OSNews, Generic OSes Ah yes, why not? The last time we did this, it was March 2011, so it's been almost a year since we offered a little insight into what kind of operating systems and browsers you, dear readers, are using. Nothing particularly earth-shattering going on here.

That's what FlashBlock is for. I have flash installed because there's still too much content online that requires it, but with FlashBlock it loads only when I want it to load.


That's fine and all, but then you aren't sending a message to website owners that you don't have flash. Just look at OSNews as the perfect example, Thom thinks we all use flash. That isn't an accurate number, because of all you "ClickToFlash" and "Flashblock" people.

Better bet is to leave it uninstalled completely, for Safari or Firefox, then jump to Chrome when absolutely necessary. This is how I run, and I rarely find myself jumping to Chrome. Everywhere I go works without flash (except swtor web site... sigh).
