"Back in October, Apple shipped its first MacBook Air models without the Adobe Flash plug-in pre-installed. In the ensuing brouhaha, Ars Technica discovered Flash cut battery life by up to 33 percent on the MacBook Air and possibly other MacBook models. Personally, my MacBook often sounds like it's preparing for space flight when I visit pages that use Adobe's plug-in."
I got tired of using Click to Flash on my MacBook Air so I did this and haven't looked back. If I need to use a site that only has Flash, I just open up Chrome. Lately I've been using Chrome for most of my browsing so it hasn't even been an issue. What are your thoughts? Do you use multiple browsers or do you continue to have Flash on your system?
