What will be the best way to use Mac without without having to install Flash ? I am hoping that there must be a technique to get around this problem because I have found out that; I couldn't open Flash websites without having installed Flash player. I am using Click2Flash and Youtube 5 extensions on Safari to play most (if not all) web videos.
Does anyone in the community have any recommendations/hints to use Mac without installing Flash player at all.

You can use a Mac perfectly fine without installing Flash. But if you want to view flash websites and games you'll need to have installed flash. There's no way around that.

Not installing Flash is an interesting choice, although with the way it runs on OS X I can certainly see why you'd want to get around it.
For YouTube, if you'd rather not use a third-party plugin, most YouTube videos support HTML5 playback. So you won't need flash to play them or a shady third-party plugin. You can enable that Here.
Not all YouTube videos support it, but it should make it easier. For those that don't you'd still need that plugin, but most do so it won't be to often you do. They are constantly making it more compatible, so in a few years the entire site could be flash free.

I dont have flash installed & most youtube & not only videos works fine with video tag. And one thing video quality is bether on clean HTML5 , like HTML5 video tag 380p = Flash video 1024p on my perception look.

I use something called ClickToPlugin, which will block ALL plugins including flash, and will try to load an H.264 version of the video instead, regardless of the site. (It's actually a spin off of ClickToFlash, but has a lot more features.)
If a website, game, or app is completely built with Flash, you won't be able to use it.
ClickToPlugin will prevent Flash from running unless you give the app/player special permission to run. Some sites haven't completely abandoned Flash yet, so getting around it on a desktop isn't ideal yet.
