Internet Explorer This is interesting news. According to WinUnleaked.tk, 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.

these days. ;) Oh, well. Maybe it won't be that bad since Metro apps are sandboxed.

I wonder if Microsoft will also support Silverlight, as there are some cool sites that use and/or require it, such as WorldWideTelescope.org, Photosynth.net, Netflix.com. Hmmm, for Netflix, I imagine there will be a dedicated metro app, so it doesn't matter if the netflix site itself supports silverlight streaming on metro. Maybe there will be dedicated Photosynth and WorldWide Telescope apps too; or maybe Microsoft will convert them to HTML5 (though I don't know if HTML5 is up to the task).
