ClickToPlugin and ClickToFlash Safari extensions


ClickToPlugin and ClickToFlash Safari extensions. ClickToPlugin is a lightweight and highly customizable extension that prevents Safari from launching plug-ins automatically, resulting in faster browsing, reduced fan usage, and increased battery life. It replaces every plug-in object by an unobtrusive placeholder that can be clicked to load the embedded content.
