Daring Fireball Linked List: No Flash Player in Metro IE

by Thomas Brady

John Gruber (Daring Fireball):

There is no room in the future for Flash.

This in response to Dean Hachamovitch’s explanation of why the Flash plugin would not be found in Metro:

Running Metro style IE plug-in free improves battery life as well as security, reliability, and privacy for consumers… Providing compatibility with legacy plug-in technologies would detract from, rather than improve, the consumer experience of browsing in the Metro style UI.
