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.

As I said we don't have any problems with IE, nice attempt at trolling. On OSNews everyone loves the "lol MS is the suckers" comments.

No I appreciate that IE doesn't have the best security record, but it is getting better.

Mozilla Firefox does not have an official MSI, so we have people running very old (and unsupported versions of Firefox, with known security flaws). However everyone is running a fully patched version of IE8 or IE9 thanks to Group Policy.

Also many can scoff, rendering wise there is a lot of things IE8 & 9 do right that other browsers do wrong.

For example third party XML such as Facebook Markup Language won't be rendered on a site unless the correct XML Namespace is supplied in the HTML root node when serving XHTML. It is invalid XHTML yet all the other browsers will quite happily render it given the correct FB.js file.

There are other examples where IE actually conforms to the specification and other browsers don't.

Juvenile comments like yours are just tiresome, and does nothing to improve the situation.

However you got upvoted ... so it might improve your e-penis.
