Reduce battery usage by controlling Flash in Safari
Authored by: hypert on Jul 08, '08 05:06:09AM

A bit off-topic, but does anyone have any better suggestions on using SafariStand's Site Alteration to re-enable Flash on some sites? For example, I like Amazon's Flash music preview tool (it doesn't use 100% of my CPU!), but I can't get a simple Site Alteration to re-enable (Flash) plug-ins on that site.

Has anyone else done this for Amazon?

The matching is a regular expression. For instance, to match anything (well, any http content at least) at macosxhints.com you'd need the following:

http://.*\.macosxhints\.com/.*

So I think you could have the "Load Plugin Manually" checked globally, then have a Site Alteration rule that matched http://.*\.amazon\.com/.* and the checkbox next to "Load Plugin Manually" unchecked.
