It has it
I have a ramdisk for it, but that's not necessary.
Nothing is really "necessary", just a matter of preference. I like to keep things tidy and organized, so many things have their own partition. I'm running out of letters in the alphabet
It's part of my obsessive compulsive nature.
I used to have my entire Chrome profile on a RAMDisk. Too much of a pain for shutdown times.
Not true - see https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=1841546&postcount=49
Interesting, I use fairly recent Chromium with FlashBlock extension, and that page shows http - 404 on the banner, which I suppose means I did not fail it. (no safeguards what-so-ever on this test, just raw browser running at High IL because of admin)
Perhaps all FlashBlocks are not the same, or the issue was fixed.
I don't even have flashblock and I got the 404 lol
I use Opera, too.
However, I do not recommend/install it when it comes to the Average Joe(s)
especially when they play these silly Facebook Flash Games.
That was a good one!
One of the best I have ever read, here!
This is what I see:
Firefox 4.01 with NoScript, using the WOT scorecard middle-click button to aid me in determining what to allow, all integrated with this soon-to-be-award-winning setup
Doesn't that just make FlashBlock redundant?
This is the only thing that works Thanks Kees
IMHO no. The problem with Noscript is that Flash is allowed on any sites which are whitelisted. If you don't want that (as flash is particularly prone to security leaks) you can chose to block plugins also on trustworthy sites - but you would have to click the placeholder button every time (on sites like Youtube that's getting rather annoying over time). Flashblock would be a good tool to overcome this Noscript weakness as it is also able to create a whitelist - on any other site flash would be blocked even if whitelisted in Noscript. Unfortunately, Flashblock is not reliable as that mentioned website proves.
Luckily, future versions of Noscript will be more flexible and will make Flashblock redundant, indeed.
