Flash now enabled for all sites in IE10/Win8 (including RT)

Initially Microsoft didn’t want the boatload of crap that comes with Flash to ruin your PC experience (lag, battery drain and security vulnerabilities). But Adobe and MS worked together to make a custom version for Win8. Initially sites were restricted to only permit sites that had ‘good’ Flash in use (excluding Desktop Win8 which was unrestricted). But as of tomorrow they will do the opposite- all sites will be enabled to run Flash unless they do not handle Flash properly in which case they are on a restricted list (noted at about 4% of all sites). So I’ll be checking for updates starting tonight (yes I’m impatient). Good Flash is good. Bad Flash is very bad. Looks like MS moved the ball…well played.
