Windows Microsoft rolled out a bunch of patches today for Windows 8, and the most important one is that Flash in IE10 now works with a blacklist instead of a whitelist. "Well, the biggest news is that Microsoft has enabled Flash to work now in Internet Explorer 10 for RT. If you recall, Microsoft only allowed a few, specific websites with Flash to work on Internet Explorer 10 citing performance and battery life reasons. There was even a neat little work around that you could do yourself to bypass this. Now, Microsoft have reversed that decision, which they say is due to more sites becoming IE10 compatible." There's a firmware update for Surface RT as well, and I have to admit my Surface RT feels a little faster and smoother - especially typing. Could be reboot-induced, though.

You beat me to it!

I stopped making special provisions for IE LONG ago. Every time I write a site it works in all browsers without issue... then I cringe when I see what IE does with it...

My CSS for ALL non-IE browsers will look like:


#myElement {
display: block;
margin: auto;
opacity: 0.85;
}


In order to work with IE8 I have to add:
-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(opacity=40)";


If I want IE7 support:
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(opacity=40);


And if I want IE6:
filter: alpha(opacity=40);



And that is just the beginning of the crap...
