Windows 8 “Modern UI” Flash Player BLACK-list

So… remember back in September of 2011 when Microsoft declared that Flash Player and other “plugins” would be barred from Internet Explorer in the Modern UI version of the browser?

Remember in May of 2012 when Microsoft relented and in place of an all-out ban, devised a troublesome whitelist which developers had to submit requests to Microsoft to be included upon? What a mess, right?

Well, starting tomorrow – the whitelist becomes a blacklist – essentially freeing up almost all Flash Player content on the web when viewed in Internet Explorer 10 on all platforms which support IE10.

Excellent news!
