Summary: Reports suggest that Adobe Flash will be supported in both desktop and Metro-style Internet Explorer 10 browsers in Windows 8.
According to reports
, Microsoft is looking to integrate Adobe Flash capabilities into Internet Explorer 10.
Adobe Flash will function on any website when the browser is ran as a desktop application, but will be limited when used as a Metro-style browser on tablet devices.
Screenshots from WinUnleaked
, released by Windows ‘insider’ Canouna through a tweet
, show that the browser ‘plugin’ will have
some functionality in the Metro version of Internet Explorer 10, even though previous reports have stated such plugins were to be barred from use — as the corporation expects a radical shift towards HTML5 in the coming years, and away from plugin services.
