    Uninstalling Flash

    Discussion started by Vanity - Aug 20, 2005

    one of the best things I ever did.

    Can always reinstall for a game or whatever, but it eliminates every annoying ad out there.. say word :stretch:

    if you're using mozilla, you could just install Adblock.

    Pop up blockers don't work on the flash popover ads, because they aren't using the same type of window.open commands that those ads use. It's usually something fancy with CSS or DHTML, but as somebody else said Firefox and Adblock can kill them quick like.
