While I enjoy reading AppleInsider, my MacBook Pro's fans race thanks to Adobe flash's misbehavior.
It's time to retire flash... everywhere, and especially, on all Mac-centric web sites.
Load the AI site. Open Activity Monitor. Force-Quit Adobe Flash. Now check out the AI site browser page. It'll say flash crashed. Screen shot below.
That’s funny; I’ve never been restricted in what I can do with the editor, but I have Flash blocked everywhere.
I’m really upset that blocking Flash doesn’t stop telling websites that you have it installed, in a slightly unrelated note.
It's not just the editor. The same crash report occurs on other pages as well. I think it's used to feed ads perhaps.
But how it's used is not the point here. Why it's used at all is the issue.
...because AI doesn't have control over the ads fed on the right side? (short of getting rid of them and charging a subscription to the site)
Click2Flash disables the flash ads... no racing fans on my MBA.
