Download ClickToFlash 1.3 here. Currently requires Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

ClickToFlash is a WebKit plug-in that prevents automatic loading of Adobe Flash content. If you want to see the content, you can opt-in by clicking on it or adding an entire site to its whitelist.

Try control-clicking (or right-clicking) on a unloaded Flash box to access ClickToFlash's contextual menu which allow you to do advanced things like edit its whitelist.

Please report bugs and request features on the Lighthouse ClickToFlash project site.
