No Flash support in next IE

Written by David Stellmack

Will drop plug-in support going forward
Microsoft appears to be committed to taking a page out of Apple’s playbook by choosing to drop support for Adobe Flash in the next version of Internet Explorer. Instead, similar to Apple, the company will be throwing its support behind HTML5. This is the direction Microsoft is apparently heading with Internet Explorer 10.

Another big change when Internet Explorer 10 arrives is that the company will be dropping support for plug-ins, at least in one version of IE 10. We don’t expect this news to be popular with many companies and web developers who have already invested significant monies in building web sites that need these plug-ins. A second version of Internet Explorer 10 will be available that will have standard plug-in support, but expect the one without the plug-in support to become the standard.

The decision to move in this direction also appears to have a lot to do with the new Metro interface that is a part of Windows 8. Metro is built to use the HTML5 as well as much of the new technology that is a part of what many hope the modern web will be going forward.

Adobe is apparently making the move to insure compatibility going forward by moving their technology and adapting it to use HTML5.  Of course, this transition will take time, but Adobe is apparently hedging its bets and building tools to export its Flash media into other formats.

"...the company will be dropping support for plug-ins..."

Good! #1 source of malware = Plugins

"...web sites that need these plug-ins."

Why do you need plugins?...If you need a functionality that is not provided by the browser, it would be safer/more secure to build a standalone application instead.

This is ONLY for the Metro design, their old win32 look will support it still. So this article is very misleading.

You will have both available.

(I've been watching all the keynotes :) )

Great news! It is time that that stinging Flash gets irradicated it was a nuisance right from the start and there always had been better technologies out there.

This is good news. Anything that helps to standardize the process can only be good for users in the long run.

Well, standardizing the process is good
but what if that standard can't offer the function that we now have with those non
standard options.
HTML5 is still ages behind compared to what you can do with Flash .

and as I heard IE won't ditch flash completely it only ditch it in metro
environment .
