Irony of Ironies, I Reinstalled Flash

A year and a half ago, following John Gruber’s lead, I uninstalled Flash on all of my computers. My machines ran better and many websites got less annoying. No more sales pitches from talking head video advertisement overlays in the bottom corner of my screen. For websites that actually require it, Chrome has its own Flash plugin, so I could always switch over from Safari.

Therein lies the problem. I’ve been avoiding Chrome as part of my quest to leave Google. So, I reinstalled Flash (and the ClickToFlash Extension). Oh well.
