    Then again Flash may be harder to kill. Still a lot of games and interactive content all over the web.

    I guess the logical thing to do is break it free of the browser as a stand alone product. Then you could click to view it in that player. The funny thing is they have had all the bits they need scattered around their ranges (flash, air, shortwave..) they should have done that ages ago, set up an app store and be creaming it in by now. But it is adobe....

    Silverlight was one of those things I never actually installed. Never saw the point really.
     
  5. The web version of Eurosport Player requires it.

    not for much longer I presume..
     
  7. Well, it took them about 2 years to fix a major bug that I reported after an 'upgrade', so I wouldn't count on that ...They will probably just insist that you do not upgrade your browser!

    Yep, unfortunately Windows 10 still comes with IE11 so crap companies will still be able to force it onto you :help:
