How to Enable Flashblock in Chrome (And Make it 5000% More Secure)



Quote:
Most people donít realize this, but when your PC gets infected from browsing a web site, itís not usually because of your browseróitís because of your plugins, like Flash, Java, and others. They are sadly insecure, but Google Chrome has a built-in option to make your PC much safer.
The option is actually called ďClick to PlayĒ, and itís only enabled inside a hidden pageóthough we have to assume itíll eventually make its way to the default Options page. The really great thing is that it works across all plugins, not just Flash, meaning that you can also stop Java and other insecure plugins.

Opera has been able to do that for years either globally or on a site by site basis .
Never knew it made Opera 5000% more secure , gives me a warm glow inside knowing I'm safer browsing.
Main reason I use plug-ins on demand is that it speeds up page loading.

I'm sure its how-to-geek hyperbole.

As well as enabling plug ins on demand turning off javascript globally makes you safer &
really speeds up page loading & you can enable javascript on sites that need it with Opera & probably Firefox & Chrome as well ?
I doubt IE 9 has any options , anyone Know if IE 9 can turn off javascript either globally or for individual sites ?
