Windows 8: The Death of Flash?

Thursday, September 15th, 2011 | Business | by

Apple and Microsoft both have a thing against Flash.

Most of my clients ask for jQuery or other non-Flash alternatives (and so far, I haven’t ever really missed Flash).

Now it sounds like Windows 8 will officially not support browser plugins in IE10.

A huge push for HTML5 and CSS3 by Microsoft, we may also see Silverlight disappearing alongside Flash.

The big problem seems to be concerns for mobile platforms, as battery life is cited as a major reason (along with security).

Windows 8 is shaping up to be a bold move for Microsoft.  Will it make me an Apple user on my desktop?  Will Windows 7 become the new “Windows 98” (people still never acknowledge Windows ME ever happened)?
