Restart the Flash plugin without quitting Safari
Authored by: koen on Sep 26, '10 08:05:27AM

I think 'WebKitPluginHost' exists on 10.6 only, can anyone confirm that? That would explain why BashFlash is 10.6 only as well.

Restart the Flash plugin without quitting Safari

I can confirm that this hint doesn't work for 10.4 Tiger on PPC (still on an old G3 iBook), after entering the "killall -9 WebKitPluginHost" I get this reply in Terminal:

"No matching processes belonging to you were found"

So I have just permanently unplugged Flash. Much better performance! And I can always used the "masquerade as iPad" trick to force HTML5 video when needed.
