Stop plug-ins to save power
Freeze content that uses plug-ins, such as ads and videos, after a brief time (to save battery life). You can click frozen content on a website to start the plug-in. The plug-in stays enabled for the website, though other content using the same plug-in on the current webpage remains frozen until the page is reloaded. Safari automatically disables plug-ins for a website you don’t visit for a few weeks.
To use your own CSS instead of webpage style sheets, click the pop-up menu, then choose Other.
