Metro Style IE10 Gets Flash... Sort Of

Posted by Richard Chao in "Digital Home News" @ 09:07 PM

"Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 8 will include a bundled, integrated version of Adobe Flash, and the Metro-style browser will support the use of Flash on a limited number of sites."

According to Within Windows and winunleaked.tk, the Metro style version of Internet Explorer 10 browser in Windows 8 will include an embedded version of Adobe Flash. Microsoft had previously announced the Metro style IE10 will not have support of plugins and since the Adobe Flash version destined for the Metro IE10 is integrated and embedded, they are still technically within those parameters.

The version of Flash on Metro IE10 will not be able to play all flash pages. Sites will have to be included on a whitelist in order for the site to work on the Metro IE10. If they are not on the whitelist, users will have to view it in the desktop version of IE10.

Adobe Flash May Be Flawed, But It's Still Critical to the Web

"In the last couple of years, it has become trendy to bash the Adobe Flash Player. I need to say a few things on that subject. First, let's be very clear: I'm not on the Flash team. I don't speak for them. (I don't speak for anyone but myself.) This post is just my personal take on things. Caveat lector. I came to Adobe ten years ago to build an open standards (SVG)-based Web animation tool. I like standards, and I have some experience here. Both authoring for & competing with the Flash Player gave me some good perspective."

Flash is a flawed product - what software isn't though - yet is has managed to advance the Web in a variety of ways, not the least of which is making online streaming video an easy to use reality. This is a really interesting article written by an Adobe employee that takes a critical look at the state of Flash and the technologies that are vying to replace it. Flash might be sometimes obnoxious - especially when it's used to create advertising banners that crash every browser out there - but it's also tremendously powerful, giving rise to world-changing sites like YouTube.
