Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) will continue to support ‘Flash and other plug-ins’ – Microsoft fires back at critics

Last Week, Microsoft’s Dean Hachamovitch posted about “The future of the web is HTML5”, that generated many comments and questions. So Hachamovitch published a new post, Follow Up on HTML5 Video in IE9, addressing many of those comments in detail. He addressed “ intellectual property rights” and H.264 in great details “Several comments asked about Microsoft’s support for plug-ins (like Flash and Silverlight). Of course, IE9 will continue to support Flash and other plug-ins. Developers who want to use the same markup today across different browsers rely on plug-ins. Plug-ins are also important for delivering innovation and functionality ahead of the standards process; mainstream video on the web today works primarily because of plug-ins. We’re committed to plug-in support because developer choice and opportunity in authoring web pages are very important; ISVs on a platform are what make it great. We fully expect to support plug-ins (of all types, including video) along with HTML5. There were also some comments asking about our work with Adobe on Flash and this report offers a recent discussion,” noted Hachamovitch.
