A quick "IsThisBrokenForEveryoneOrJustForMe" kind of question.

I'm using the latest Google Chrome for Mac 5.0.375.29 beta with the latest ClickToFlash.webplugin 1.6b9 available. [clicktoflash.com]. Except it doesn't work; no Flash gets blocked. It works in Safari 3.x and 4.x (mine=4.0.5), with which Chrome shares the rendering engine, so why not here?

Maybe Chrome doesn't support WebPlugIn properly (http://developer.apple.com/mac/library/documentation/cocoa/Reference/WebKit/Protocols/WebPlugIn_Protocol/Reference/Reference.html). For Chrome, you can try FlashBlock (https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/gofhjkjmkpinhpoiabjplobcaignabnl) or Kill-Flash (https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/kfncbcioneejfnnelcdmocdjncbmceea) .

No maybes, Ionut, certainties; thanks. It works now, though its settings menu is very icky to massage. Any idea where Chrome stores this extension or a pointer to it? (I've looked through all the usual suspect folder hierarchies, nothing stands out.)
