Windows 8 likely To Support Adobe Flash

Posted on May 27, 2012. Filed under: Technology | Tags: , |

About eight months back,when Microsoft introduced its Windows 8 Metro UI, it was almost clear that the company’s Metro version of Internet Explorer will not support Adobe Flash or any third party plugins. Now, the web has been flashing news of the possibility of the Metro UI will featuringbuild-in flash support as pointed out in a forum post on . The forum reveals, “Adobe Flash player is included in the Release Preview, Adobe shared the “source code” with Microsoft. Internet Explorer Immersive will coming with flash too.”

The reason for a plug-infree experience was to improve battery life, while maintaining security, reliability and privacy for consumers. Paul Thurrott’s Supersitefor Windows says,”…Microsoft does work closely with Adobe, closely enough that Adobe actually provided Microsoft with source code access to Flash, allowing them to seamlessly integrate the technology into IE 10. Thus, Microsoft did not need to make an exception to its no-add-on policy for Internet Explorer Metro. By making Flash a part of IE 10 Microsoft ensures thecode meets its own standards for reliability, compatibility, security, and also probably the performance. We hope it works just fine for Microsoft.”

Reportedly, Microsoft hasrefused to comment on this, saying that the company doesn’t comment on speculations and rumours. Lately, the first Windows 8 tablet also made its unofficial debut in the form of the Dell Latitude 10 tablet, a 10-incher that is powered by Intel’s Clover Trail Atom Dual Core processor with 2GB RAM. The leaked specs were soon enough speculated to be weak. Windows 8, is undoubtedly the most awaited product of the year. While we’d expected Nokia to come out with its Windows-based tablet first, the company has completely denied to the most recnt reports by claiming them to be ‘misconstrued.’
