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.

Mozilla is right. Better to focus on pure HTML solutions, instead of supporting an obsolete technology like Flash.

How is it obsolete? ... I love it how people throw these words about.

When the Unreal 3 Engine runs in HTML5 ... give us a call.

And No WebGL is not the answer ...

Like it or not Flash works fine. Mozilla's market share is tanking because they are embracing Idealism over Pragmatism.

Answer to what? WebGL is good for what it's good. For really heavy games you don't need a browser - you need real OpenGL anyway.
