plugin-container.exe loading in Gmail, what if I shut it down?

Whenever I open my Gmail (Google mail), plugin-container.exe loads into memory. What happens if I shut down plugin-container.exe via task manager while the Gmail tab is still open? Will that crash my browser? (what happens to the Gmail tab in that case?) would that be safe? Thanks

Firefox will probably crash. For disabling plugin-container.exe, see my suggestion in this post:

Read the warning at the bottom of my answer in that post.

Try it and see what happens.

OK tried it!, I get a message saying: Adobe Flash has crashed, and the possibility of reloading the page. Wasn't so bad after all. Although I'm surprised Gmail uses Flash.
