ClickToFlash the Safari Extension

In incredibly limited testing, it seems to work really well. You can download it from here. I've tried a few others, but this one seems to be the best.

I like the separation of source and location lists, but it doesn't seem to work. I've added "thesandtrap.com" to the location list and yet Flash will still not always load there1. Additionally, I don't have a keyboard shortcut like ctrl-cmd-f to load the Flash, and I can't ctrl-click to choose to add a destination to the whitelist(s).

I doubt that any of these are simply due to issues with the original ClickToFlash still being installed (albeit disabled/turned off).

It's incredibly disappointing to me that ClickToFlash has essentially been abandoned. And fwiw, the ssp-created branch has always been far too crashy for my tastes.

Here's to hoping there's more room within the Safari Extension space to innovate and update CTF:SEV (Safari Extension Version).

Footnotes

  1. I get that the true "source" destination is an iframe or something, but it's an iframe within thesandtrap.com so I think it should work.
