ClickToPlugin installs like any other Safari extension: double click the .safarixtz file and confirm the process when prompted. You can manage it via the Safari Preferences window and you must check the “Click this checkbox to access the settings” box to be able to adjust its behavior.
Unobtrusive plug-in management
By default ClickToPlugin replaces the Flash player with the HTML5 media player and blocks various plug-ins: the default browser helper, the Java Applet plug-in, the Quicktime plug-in, Shockwave Flash and the Unity player.
When a certain element is blocked, ClickToPlugin displays the name of the target plug-in and allows you to restore it via a simple contextual menu. This way the content is blocked by default, but you still have access to it.
Quickly personalize the plug-in behavior
Through the ClickToPlugin Settings window you get to specify which plug-ins should be loaded by default, the websites that can use the plug-ins without restrictions, the default media player (HTML5, Flash, QuickTime or AirPlay), the entries that should be included in the contextual menu or the hotkeys for most functions.
Furthermore, in the Media Player tab you get to set up the default resolution, the initial player behavior, the default sound volume, to establish an autoplay action on specific websites and more.
Simple solution for blocking unwanted content
ClickToPlugin is a very useful Safari extension if you want to make sure that the content rendered by certain plug-ins is blocked by default. This way, whenever browsing a website that contains irrelevant data displayed through plug-ins, you will not waste any resources.
