A few weeks ago, Microsoft launched Windows 8 Release Preview.
One of the improvements in Release Preview from Consumer Preview was the support of flash in IE10.
Now, Microsoft have come up with a detailed post on the Official IE blog about the support of flash in IE 10.
Microsoft integrated flash in such a way that their is no need to install or download flash manually. They will come pre-installed.
But IE 10 will not support playing flash on any website. Only those websites which are listed in the Flash section of the company’s Compatibility View List will be able to run flash.
“Site developers continue to control the content they serve to browsers. Developers can send HTML5 content to Metro style IE or express their preference that Metro style IE prompt users to run their site on the desktop (see details here). Developers can also request that their site is considered for addition to the CV list for Flash.
Additional technical information and details can be found in the document posted on MSDN. These details include how developers can test Flash content on their own sites in Metro style IE and how to submit their sites for consideration for the CV list.
The documentation also includes a best practices guide to help developers, designers, and content publishers create experiences with Flash that play well in Metro style IE.”. Microsoft added.
Adding flash support was a very demanded feature from the Consumer Preview itself. This time, Microsoft heard the demands of consumers and came up with a solution fot flash.
Microsoft and Adobe worked together to make it possible.
I would like to see more support for flash websites in future by IE 10.
What about you?
