Reduce battery usage by controlling Flash in Safari
Authored by: jon.pdx on Mar 22, '10 03:23:44PM

Don't forget that you can simply uncheck the enable plug-ins in the Security Tab of Safari's preferences (v4.0.5). While this is not the most flexible option, it might work for some people.
I just got rid of an SIMBL password plugin/app and didn't really want to install it again to control Flash. I'm not sure if it was slowing down my system or not, but things seem better now. Perhaps I had an older version... Apparently the architecture changed with Snow Leopard and 64-bit apps.

Personally, I wish that Safari had more of a plug-in architecture so that people didn't have to come up with work arounds like SIMBL to modify Safari's behavior. Although, what I like about Safari is that it is clean and simple....
