Try the flashblock extension for firefox. It lets you select which embedded flash to load and display. It's great for saving processor power on any machine...flash isn't exactly the most efficient piece of software out there....

adblock can block it too (and also those annoying ads). Again, one can be selective.

However, konqueror seems lighter on RAM usaage than the Mozilla family, and I'm convinced they leak memory.
