Many sites have multople Flash items on a single page. For example, there might be a big Flash box with the video you want to see, and various smaller boxes with Flash ads and other Flash content.

So multiple instances of Flash might all be running simultaneously.

I no longer have Flash installed on my Mac, but when I did, I used a browser extension called "click-to-Flash" that showed an empty box where the Flash content would have otherwise loaded. By clicking that box, I could load just the Flash content for that box, while not loading the other Flash content on the same webpage.

I've also found that many websites will look their content without flash, if I set my browser agent to "iPad."
