Tested: How Flash destroys your browser's performance

We tested the effects of browsing with and without Flash on several major browsers. Enabling Flash is, in a word, catastrophic.

  • The Web’s information superhighway is increasingly littered with ads, popups and worse.

  • You can dig into the Task Manager (WIN + X) to find out what’s chewing up your system resources. All these background processes slow your PC down.

  • Simply turning on and off Flash can make a significant difference in the amount of resources your browser uses.

  • To toggle Adobe Flash off and on in the Microsoft Edge browser, you need to dive into the Advanced Settings menu.
