Comment on Flashless

Flashless emphasizes the video aspect of Flash on the Web. It fetches previews and plays video from popular sites on the Web without loading the Flash player; has whitelisting for use with heavily Flash-reliant domains, and blacklisting for ads.

ClickToFlash emphasizes convenience. It can distinguish and load tiny/hidden flash elements (like sIFR, for Flash fonts and the Flickr uploader) by default, and all the rest with a click; has whitelisting. The project seems to have not been moving forward much lately.

Flashless would supersede ClickToFlash in functionality if the developer implemented a preference to load the Flash player instead of loading the video on popular video sites, and another one for sIFR/tiny Flash elements.
