AutoKill for your Flash Player from FlashFrozen
Known earlier as BashFlash, this app is now with a new name – FlashFrozen. It is available for Mac at $0.99 and lets you gain more control over the Flash Player.
Have you found your iStat Menus or Activity Monitor showing crazy numbers for CPU usage by Adobe Flash Player?
And what about the time when you saw that your MacBook Air is performing really well in terms of battery life, but as soon as you loaded a Flash instance, it started suffering? Happens a lot, doesn’t it? For all such Flash problems, FlashFrozen is your solution.
The previous version used to warn the user when Flash started using a lot of CPU time, and allowed them to ‘kill’ that plugin manually from the page that displayed Flash content. But with the latest update (1.3), developers have given users an option that would automatically kill Flash with a system-wide effect the moment it is loaded. This prevents it from overusing CPU, and gives you an option to have a second thought about killing it. And once it is triggered, an AutoKill icon will be active in the menu bar.
If you do not want to uninstall Flash completely, but you do want to save battery time, you should get FlashFrozen:
While working on your MacBook, have you noticed battery loss as you start Flash Player? Do you think AutoKill would be sufficient for your needs, or do you need something else to solve your problems? Write to us through comments.
