Flash Drains the Battery, Costs You Two Hours of Your Battery Life

"Steve Jobs has repeatedly insisted that Flash is a resource-hog. A review of the 11-inch MacBook Air conducted by Ars Technica shows he's quite right. The new Air shows a drop in battery life with Flash installed, at a cost of around two hours of use."

Losing about a third of your battery life to Flash is annoying, but you can just install ClickToFlash and solve that problem. Or you can use this fix from Daring Fireball to avoid Flash issues. It appears a bit is needed to initially set it up but it does solve the problem of having Flash running in the background. How do you work around Flash, or do you?
