Fara Flash in Windows 8 Metro UI

Microsoft a ajuns la concluzia lui Steve Jobs: cu un browser bun + HTML5 nu mai ai nevoie de Flash. Steven Sinofsky de la Microsoft explica decizia luata:

“For the web to move forward and for consumers to get the most out of touch-first browsing, the Metro style browser in Windows 8 is as HTML5-only as possible, and plug-in free. The experience that plug-ins provide today is not a good match with Metro style browsing and the modern HTML5 web.

Running Metro style IE plug-in free improves battery life as well as security, reliability, and privacy for consumers. Plug-ins were important early on in the web’s history. But the web has come a long way since then with HTML5. Providing compatibility with legacy plug-in technologies would detract from, rather than improve, the consumer experience of browsing in the Metro style UI.”

  1. Va fi oare Cook capabil de aceste “bald decisions” ? Ma refer la retragerea flash-ului, dar si a floppy, mouse si CD-Rom.

  2. Lol cate comenturi sunt la postul lui @Steven….aproape toata lumea e impotriva acestei decizii fasciste: “no flash si fara alte pluginuri”.

    Ajung ca Apple sa impuna, in loc sa lase libertatea alegerii.

    “What about Silverlight? As far as I know you are not supporting WebGL so how am I supposed to get hardware accelerated 3d in the browser?”

    “The apps that supposedly use “awesomeness” HTML… suck. And it was evident in a keynote demo. Flash or Silverlight devs would create better apps in a week that took them what, eight weeks????”

    “I think this is a mistake, people love customizing their browser with all kinds of add-ons.”

    “I understand your reasoning to disable the plugins. But shouldn’t such decisions be made by the user instad of the OS vendor?

    You could disbale them by default, but please give users an option to re-enable them. (It’s okay if it’s burried in the settings, those who need to find it, will find it)

    Please give users more choice when it comes to such options. It’s stille an PC operation system right?”

    “I spend 4 hard years developing Silverlight skills and then you tell me it’s a bad thing and that I should trust Microsoft and spend another several years learning an inferior technology called Metro HTML 5 that will only run on a tablet in Win 8 – you have got to be kidding!

    Good luck with Metro – you are going to be missing a lot of senior developers,”

  3. Sint total de acord. Flash e invechit si nu mai are ce sa caute. Daca Microsoft baga HTML5 corect, presimt un viitor frumos pentru Internet Explorer 10, 11, 12. Daca baga hack-uri ca sa le mearga lor nu stiu ce feature, atunci revenim la IE6.

    Multi spun ca Windows 8 e succesorul lui WinME si Vista. Adica tot un fail.
