Is there something out there that does flash without the adobe stuff? It seems that a big part of the problems on my computer keep coming back to flash.

Hi Paul,
I feel your pain. Lots of browser lockups, etc. Bah.

The only thing I've seen that is recent was written for the Ubuntu OS.

And I've only heard of it; I've not tried it so I can't say how it works.

I do use "flashblock" to stop the flash stuff from displaying on a site, unless I want it. Seems to help a bit and it's quick to disable for a page.

another one called "noflash" also.

NoScript can be set to block too, but then i can't see Captha either.

Am downloading Miro player now, for the MSL landing. It is supposed to be a good player, and can sandbox flash items too.

I have NO adobe left on my computer.... try using Foxit reader instead of AR. you get less calls to the shared library, and fewer hangs.
 
Paper jam tastes about as you would expect. Try some on this tiny ad:
