Users should have the ability to restrict which sites can load plugins. This is for the sake of security and usibility. If we don't trust a site, we should not allow it the possibility of exploiting a bug we don't know about in a plugin. Also, we should not allow sites to run resource consuming plugins for irritating ads. Further, as unstable plugins currently have the ability to crash a browser, the only way to prevent it is by not using them at all, instead of limiting their use to certain circumstances. For instance, I can't use the flash plugin at all because of the prevalance of flash ads. There is the possibility of my browser crashing for nearly any site I visit.

We've talked about possibly doing something like this in 1.1 so it may be a dupe, but confirming until I find one.
