Internet Explorer for Windows 8 and Windows RT is now flash enabled thanks to an update that has been made available today. Microsoft has been delaying flash compatibility for IE10 as it conducted tests on how flash enabled sites worked on the new tough-enabled Windows 8 and RT platforms. Microsoft had to make sure flash programs didn’t have an unusually adverse effect on performance and battery times, two key parameters in tablet and touch enabled tablet/notebook hybrid devices. Until now, only the sites present in Microsoft’s Compatibility View list were showing flash content. However, some of the sites will still be incompatible, though it’s only 4 percent compared to the thousands of domains that Microsoft has found to be perfectly compatible.
