Internet Explorer Loosing Plug-ins, Adobe Flash

Microsoft is following the competition, it seems, in that they are following Apple‘s choice of support for HTML5 media over Adobe‘s Flash Player. Furthermore, it seems that most versions of Internet Explorer 10 will no longer have access to plug-ins at all, meaning you will get Microsoft’s choice of web viewing or nothing if you are going to use their browser.
Internet Explorer 10 is being designed under Microsoft’s new Metro user interface, to be released with Windows 8, so it is no surprise that plug-ins are getting the boot. Plug-ins take time to load, and Metro is all about condensed applications for quicker computer usage. Adobe seems to have reacted to this as their latest design and publication software is capable generating HTML5 viewable media, but it will take time before everyone converts and alters their web media to the “universal” standard. Thus far, alternative browsers for Windows 8, such as Firefox, Chrome, and Opera, have said little on whether they will follow, or stay with their plug-in capabilities.

Kongregate Arcade hits Android!

About time something happened with the purchase of Kongregate from Gamestop. Some of you asking what is Kongregate Arcade. It is a separate application store from the Android Market with one big difference. Kongregate Arcade is about sitting around 300 flash enabled games THAT ARE FREE! Yes you heard me right FREE! Gamestop gobbled up this company last summer and has been waiting on a great time to drop it.
This makes things difficult for developers out there that are trying to develop premium applications for the market but on the other hand it is great for the consumers. We will keep you posted as more drops from this and be sure and check out the whole press release after the break.
