My first two weeks without Flash

My first two weeks without Flash

Two weeks ago I used  IE 6's new "Manage Addins..." to disable the Flash plugin.  I was worried about some of the content I'd miss.  After two weeks, my experience has been that I have not missed much.  Here is a short list of what I've noticed without Flash:

  • The Good:
    • Stopped getting annoying Flash-based ads that were hijacking my web-browsing experience
    • SlashDot is working again.  I was getting flash-based ads that were forwarding me to other sites.
  • The Bad (sorta):
    • Several sites interactive stuff isn't available to me, including:

Overall I am happy.  The good certainly outweighs the bad IMHO . What's your experience?
