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.

Your comment motivated me to uninstall Flash and see how usable (or crippling) Firefox is without it. Should be interesting. I just looked through the 52 tabs I had open after uninstalling Flash and restarting Firefox and all seem reasonable.

My little experiment is meeting with mixed-success. Most techy sites have been reasonably usable. But apparently Taco Bell felt that having Flash on their front page was critical and told me I needed Flash ("This site requires that you have Adobe Flash installed on your computer. Click here to download and install Flash."). Thankfully I didn't really need their site to get the info I wanted.

Right, you can pick up a laxative at your local Walgreens for much cheaper than taco bell sells them for.

Sorry, I had to. Taco Bell is the funkiest of the funky fast food joints. ;)

I'm guessing installing the add-on NoScript is probably an answer you weren't aware of.

You can choose whether things like flash objects run or not, on a permanent or temporary basis.
