YouTube5 Safari Extension

My new favorite Safari extension:

This extension removes the need to use flash on YouTube by converting all videos to their HTML5 video tag equivalents. It also has the added benefits of decreased CPU usage compared to Flash, and the removal of in-video ads.

I’ve followed Steven Frank’s lead, and completely disabled Flash Player on my computer. I don’t miss it at all — largely thanks to YouTube5.
