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.

Member since:

Something tells me that the world has not gone out of its way to update its flash content to be compatible with Windows RT, and rather that MS realized that it made a stupid decision and decided to reverse it while (officially) saving face.

Content providers will have to update their content for iOS based devices and modern Android hw anyway. Microsoft just pu**ied out and did the wrong thing. You can always count on MS to do the wrong thing.
