There is a built-in way to have FlashBlock functionality in Chrome, but it isn't obvious in the Options menu. Anyone remember what the steps are?

Use the Content Settings dialog to manage the following settings: cookies, images, JavaScript, plug-ins, pop-ups, location sharing, and notifications. Follow these steps:

Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar. Mac users: If you don't see the wrench icon, go to the menu bar at the top of your screen and click Chrome. Select Options (Preferences on a Mac). Click the Under the Hood tab. Click Content settings in the "Privacy" section. Click the tabs to manage different settings: ... Plug-ins are used by websites to enable certain types of web content (such as Flash or Windows Media files) that browsers can't inherently process. They're allowed by default.

Apparently the Chrome developers changed things around so that the option has to be enabled from the about:flags page (type that into your browser and hit enter - bottom of the screen is "Click-to-play"). Then you might still need to do the procedure above.

It won't even touch JavaScript (since it is not an external plugin). Every other plugin (such as Java & co.) will behave exactly like the Flash plugin. – m.capobianco Nov 16 '10 at 17:22
That's the ticket. All the way at the bottom of about:flags on Chrome 8.0.552.210 beta (Windows). – oKtosiTe Nov 28 '10 at 0:30

Click the "customize" icon at top right. Choose tools then extensions enter "flashblock" into the search field.

Under the settings tab, go to under the hood, click on content settings and click on the plugins tab, there are three choices including a click to play button

The only options I see there are Run automatically and Block all. (8.0.552.210 beta) – oKtosiTe Nov 28 '10 at 0:24
