Flash is a superb innovation allowing video to be displayed instantly in browsers but it can also be a pain in the form of Flash pop-ups and even viruses. FlashFrozen helps you block those that are causing you problems.

It's a Menu Bar item that allows you to quit the Flash plug-in all the major browsers if a Flash animation is hogging your Mac's CPU cycles or freezing the loading of web pages. It works with Safari, Chrome and Firefox and quite simply, when a Flash site is detected, asks you whether you want to allow it in your Menu Bar. Clicking FlashFrozen's menubar icon when it's red will now automatically kill Flash Player plugins

FlashFrozen is particularly ideal for blocking sites that are covered in Flash advertisements. If you're working on a MacBook, this can certainly extend your battery life as Flash animations consume valuable CPU resources.

FlashFrozen is an excellent tool for anyone that's sick of Flash ads and associated browser crashes.

Changes

  • Clicking FlashFrozen's menubar icon when it's red will now automatically kill Flash Player plugins. No menu manipulation required.
