Flash and being fed up

So since the Iranian election, more of the sites I go to have embedded youtube videos all over the place. It got to the point that when loading my dailies my computer would basically lock up.

A quick install of flashblock, and the web is usable again. I can selectively turn the flash on when I want to see the videos. Nice side effect of blocking stupid flash ads. Also, everything is much quicker to load.

I might look into some selective javascript disabling too, that is also starting to get annoying. I am very interested in this html5 idea.
