If you already know what Flash is, and how to block it, you don't need to read this.

Macromedia Flash is a great program, and is totally necessary if you want to view many movies, games, and websites. However, nowadays, many internet ads (especially the most invasive and annoying ones) use Flash.

I would call these types of ads, borderline abusive as they are often in the middle of the screen, very load, and can't be closed. Just disabling Flash isn't a good option because then you can't view much of the website to begin with.

However, you can download programs that block Flash, but allow you to enable specific Flash media by clicking on them. I use a Mozillia add-on that you can download for free here :

It works great, if you use Mozillia.
