Microsoft has unveiled that from now onwards it will allow Flash content to run by default in Internet Explorer 10 in both of Windows RT and Windows 8. The company says that web developers in recent time have made sufficient progress results in bringing touch interactivity over to the Flash content. “As we have seen through testing over the past several months, the vast majority of sites with Flash content are now compatible with the Windows experience for touch, performance, and battery life.”

Although Microsoft still saw that small number of Flash-based sites still not meet its criteria will continue to be a part of blockage, resulting in those websites will be a part of “Compatibility View (CV)” list, but over the top the software giant says that end users will not encounter any of issues. “We believe having more sites ‘just work’ in IE10 improves the experience for consumers, businesses, and developers,” reads a blog post on the change. “As a practical matter, the primary device you walk around with should give you access to all the Web content on the sites you rely on. Otherwise, the device is just a companion to a PC.”
