Windows 8 Tablets, to Support Flash?

Written on September 20, 2011 by Japhet Writ

If tablets running on Windows 8 will be a hit, would a Flash support be essential?

After Microsoft’s previous announcement that the Internet Explorer browser in Windows 8’s Metro interface wouldn’t support plug-ins, Adobe stated that it expects tablets and PCs running the said OS to support Flash “just fine.”

The latter also added on its Adobe Flash Platform Blog that the operating system would support rich web-based games and premium videos. However, Microsoft stated that it worked hard to let Metro rely on older technologies as little as possible. Thus, they concentrated on the latest web technology, the HTML 5.

That said, Adobe pointed out that users will still be able to access Flash content via Windows desktop interface rather than the Metro. Hence, people using the standard computer to browse the Internet are unlikely to be affected. However, viewing Flash content is not going to be easy on tablets that take advantage of the Metro interface. As such, Adobe hopes to get around this problem through its AIR platform — as it does with current tablets based on Android, iOS and BlackBerry tablet OS.
