I was looking on the web this morning for a good way to disable flash animations easily (and to be able to turn them back on just as easy).
I found this program called No! Flash
that fits the bill quite well. So, if any of you are sick of flash ads flying all over your screen and making anoying sounds, I think this is a pretty good freeware product.
No, I'm not affiliated with the product in any way (just found it this morning).
