    Default Should I Install Adobe Flash Player on My Mac Mini?

    I got a new Mac Mini about a year ago and have kept it fairly stock and clean. I didn't really have any issues with not being able to do things I needed to get done and if I did, I would just wait until I was at work and get it done on their computer. But, I am running into a lot more instances of needing Adobe Flash Player on the web lately. I really don't want to install it.

    Any thoughts on the pluses and minuses of installing it or not? Thanks!

    Depends on what the instances are. If it's mostly those annoying entry screens people have on websites...well worth skipping. (And warrants an email complaining to whoever maintains that site.)

    No, mostly map and video related. Also some games won't play, but that doesn't bother me because it just gives me more time to do other things rather than waste my time on a silly game (I save that for work!).

    No real need to, I havent used Flash in atleast a couple of years.
    Apple built it, so it will work.

    It is up to you. Your Mac is secure, so flash isn't a security risk. Most browsers (chrome, Firefox) have flash installed automatically.
