BashFlash... Flash animations and videos are among the top processor hogs on Mac OS X. A single poorly-designed Flash banner - even in an inactive window or tab - can suck up an entire processor core with its shady mortgage offers. Your 5-hour battery life gets cut in half, your laptop runs hotter, and your legs cook to medium-rare.

That's where BashFlash comes into play. BashFlash lets you stop a running Flash plug-in dead in its tracks, letting your new-fangled Mac cool down, use less power, and give you more time to do whatever it is you do. Probably blog or tweet or something.

ClickToFlash is a better design, it blocks all flash, or optionally only certain types of flash, and the user can choose to load and play a single flash or all the flash on a web site. It also has white list functionality so the user can always let flash play on certain sites or domains.

That said, BashFlash will do the job, and it's great to see some competition among Mac flash blockers - one can never have too many.

Props for the description, too!
"A single poorly-designed Flash banner - even in an inactive window or tab - can 5uck up an entire processor core with its shady mortgage offers."

So true. It seems that flash is a magnet for gullible fools and the hucksters they feed, the internet equivalent of the shouting cokehead on "As Seen On TeeVee" scams.

seems that bash flash has died and gone to flashfrozen, as well as from free to $.99

Does it do anything? Never seems to turn grey or red, even with flash at 130%
