Turn your volume off
1) I want
system sounds, I want
audio when I play games, I want
sound when I listen to MP3s or internet radio. I NEVER
want sounds embedded in webpages. Leaving the browser plugins in place and turning off my speakers would be beyond retarded.
2) I would still be forced to download the audio files that I don't want, and at 56k, every little Kb counts.
Deleting the plugins from my browser's plugins folder only takes less than a minute (navigating to the folder takes the longest :-\ ), and only has to be done once.
Darkest soul, evil's courrier, serve me as a skeleton warrior!
