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.

Great, so IE will now crash twice as much now that Flash is integrated into it.
This is like integrating feces into diarrhea.
What a pathetic and desperate move from Microsoft/Adobe.

Now all they need is integrating Java aswell, then it'll be the unsafest browser on th.. oh wait, they already were!

I do think this might give them a competitive speed advantage on flash games though.

The Microsoft JVM was discontinued in 2003?

Because the current version of Windows is Windows XP RTM.
