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):

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