While for online marketers everywhere, Flash components provide an easy way to display banners and advertisements, for the regular user, they may be a nuisance. Even though Flash still plays an important role in various online content – from online games, forms, file uploaders or web applications – with the arrival of HTML5 everyone is viewing it as a villain.

The problem with flash stems from the fact that it may bundle or host malware code that can make its way into the computer of anyone who clicks these banners intentionally or accidentally. This is why it is understandable why so many users prefer to block the Flash components and not take any risks that they might click and run malicious code.

The Flash blocker utilities are mostly comprised of browser extensions that provide quick ways to manage whether the scripts should run temporarily or permanently. Depending on the websites that you are visiting regularly, you may want to have certain components running properly, such as a form where you upload files or fill in information to request access or perhaps, games, documents or other data.

Flash blocker extensions are mainly designed to help you block out annoying advertisements that do not only have a chance to include malicious code, but that also eat up a considerable amount of your computer's resources. You will be happy to learn that most of them allow you to set filters and hence, you can select what sections of the pages should be blocked, thus enabling a smoother browsing experience.
