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.

Adobe is not favouring Chrome over other browsers. They are making Flash available for anyone who adopts that plug-in standard. Any browser teams willing to implement the feature will be able to run future versions of Flash on Linux. Chrome just happens to be the first to do so.


More like the only one, at present. Last I heard, Mozilla decided that they weren't going to implement Pepper because Google did as they do with Android, unilaterally designed it, and said "Here it is, Take it or leave it."

How dare Google actually solve the problem, rather than just campaigning for the end of Flash.

Except they did not "solve" anything. The only thing that would solve the problem is Flash going away.
