    Flash: Back from the dead again?

    Microsoft changes its IE Flash policies, there are ructions in HTML5, and Adobe is readying a new release of its Flash development tools. Is it time for the return of the plug-in?

    Although Microsoft has been proselytising the 'plugin-free Web' for the last couple of years, it doesn't think Flash is dead yet, either.

    That's why Internet Explorer 10 on Windows RT ended up including Flash built into the browser (and updated along with the rest of Windows, to avoid the security problems as hackers turn their attention away from the better-secured Windows operating system and onto common applications like Flash and Acrobat).

    Initially, Flash was locked down on Windows RT and in the 'modern' version of IE 10 even on Windows 8, so that it would only run if sites were on a Microsoft approved whitelist.

    I attended a seminar today at the community college I work at that was originally going to be about TouchDevelop, but Construct 2 was used during the lecture instead. And HTML5 is what that's all about, which got me to thinking that a lot of my future programming endeavors will be based on that. This phenomenon of Flash going into and out of relevancy is really strange.
