FlashBlock

Some users are perfectly happy with the presence of ads (or even enjoy them), but are totally uncomfortable with the network load time and processing requirements for running Flash applets, especially Flash-based ads.  FlashBlock, as its name implies, allows you to block them.  The good thing about FlashBlock is that it leaves the outline of the original Flash applet intact, where the user can opt to subsequently load by clicking on it.  And yes, FlashBlock can be configured to block Microsoft SilverLight, too.

While the amount of time you interact with the Web browser might differ depending on individual job responsibilities, Paul Mah thinks it would be fair to say that many of us spend hours a day on the Web in the course of our work or personal interests.  As you can imagine, the presence (or absence) of quality plug-ins or browser extensions can enhance or impede our productivity.

Paul made the switch from Mozilla Firefox to Google Chrome earlier this year due to performance degradation that he found taxing to his productivity.  With extensions now supported in the stable release of Chrome, he thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the most useful extensions. These are his favorite Google Chrome extensions.
