Microsoft Kicking Plug-Ins To The Curb In IE10

Quote:
Even though Steve Jobs retired, his mammoth, forward-looking hit-or-miss vision is still leaving its fingerprints all over the tech industry. Case in point: Adobe Flash. By now, everyone knows that Apple refused to allow Flash to run on iOS systems. For the Metro (read: mobile) version of IE10 in Windows 8, Microsoft’s not only blocking Flash functionality, it's jumping whole hog on the HTML5 bandwagon and restricting plug-ins entirely.

Just to point out...their are two versions of IE, a Metro version that would be mostly uses on tablet like devices, and a desktop version which would be of a classic UI, it will still have plugins. The author is quite mus-informored.

No Flash, no Hulu. All the reason more not to use IE.

Only if you are using the version designed for tablets. Otherwise the regular desktop version will work just fine. Like I said above, there are two versions of IE. A Metro UI and a Desktop UI.

In Windows 8, IE 10 is available as a Metro style app and as a desktop app. The desktop app continues to fully support all plug-ins and extensions. The HTML5 and script engines are identical and you can easily switch between the different frame windows if you’d like

Even without Flash, I assume website like YouTube and Huku will be able to provide content to users. HTML5 really does wonders, I guess it's just a matter of global implementation, right?
Yeah, it sounds somewhat easy, but not all websites will be able to afford it/pull it off, perhaps.

Still, to me this comes off as another "con" on the list of pros and cons for upgrading to Windows 8. For me, it's already annoying that the MetroUI isn't actually all that fluid and doesn't really provide a full experience against the old Desktop UI. Switching back and forth every so often breaks the "illusion" of a whole new environment because, hey, we do much more than just use the internet. The MetroUI with it's web apps may be a good competitor to those funny looking little Chromebook thingies, but that's it. Currently, even if I disable the Metro features and the Ribbon taskbar (which now I know I definitely won't like), the Details pane will still be gone from the bottom of Explorer, leaving us with an ugly and unnecessary status bar; having only an option to but either the Preview pane or the Details pane to the right hand side of Explorer definitely isn't a solution. What if I want to have both at some point or another, even for reference?

I'm going a bit off topic here, but nevertheless, experiencing IE10PP3 on WDP, I'm sad we don't seem to have it for 7. I'd sure as hell love to use it even more than IE9.
