Internet Explorer This is interesting news. According to, and given credence by Rafael Rivera and Paul Thurrot, Adobe has given Microsoft the source code to Flash, so that Microsoft could fully integrate it into Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 8. Interesting move, and probably not a bad one considering just how popular Flash still is, especially for games.

So why doesn't Adobe hand over the source code to Flash to Mozilla, Opera and Apple? Why doesn't Adobe simply release it under an OSI-approved license?

As long as there was one, and only one version of Flash, tweaked only when absolutely necessary to make it cross-platform, and not 30 different forks of it.

Adobe failed at doing that even under their own control.
