fantastic.

just this past week, a new web browser was released for Mac only that i believe will replace Firefox as my prefered browser: [Camino] version 1.5.

the main pull is that it has two content features that Firefox doesn't have - "block advertising" which will disable most banner ads, and "block flash animations" which blocks flash animation loading without first clicking on the flash on the page.

you can also opt to have Flash play by default for certain sites by creating a custom .css file.

we'll see how well it performs my daily web browsing grind, but so far... awesome.

seems like it from the little i gather about adblock plus. The flash blocker is particularly nice too, though i would hate it if i couldn't customize it a little.

yeah, the flashblocking thing they put into camino is based on the flashblock code. i imagine that in future versions they'll create some sort of ui to deal with it. *shrug*
