How to Make Safari Flash Free



+ Add a Comment


Thanks for covering this! I use YouTube5 and used to use ClickToFlash, till I decided to become an anti-Flash martyr and remove Flash from Safari completely. I'm currently following John Gruber's recommendation and launching Chrome if I really need Flash. (

P.S. Last I checked, MacLife's own videos (like the ones from MacWorld 2011) play fine on iOS devices, but in a Flash-less desktop Safari you get the "Flash plug-in required" non-sense. Set Safari's user agent to "iOS" though and you get great HTML5 video. Any chance y'all will fix this? Flash-free pages aren't just for iPhones.
