Anche Microsoft volta le spalle a Flash 15.09.11

La versione con interfaccia Metro di Internet Explorer 10, sul prossimo Windows 8, sarà plug-in free il che significa niente Flash e pieno supporto a HTML5.
La versione desktop manterrà invece la retrocompatibilità con il plugin.

Microsoft segue la via già tracciata da Apple per un web più usabile, veloce e che richieda meno risorse.

Running Metro style IE plug-in free improves battery life as well as security, reliability, and privacy for consumers. Plug-ins were important early on in the web’s history. But the web has come a long way since then with HTML5. Providing compatibility with legacy plug-in technologies would detract from, rather than improve, the consumer experience of browsing in the Metro style UI.

Flash was created during the PC era – for PCs and mice. Flash is a successful business for Adobe, and we can understand why they want to push it beyond PCs. But the mobile era is about low power devices, touch interfaces and open web standards – all areas where Flash falls short.
