    Microsoft claims that Edge browser is the most energy-efficient browser currently available for Windows 10 users, but the company promises even more improvements in this regard with the upcoming Anniversary Update due in July.

    Also known as Redstone, the Anniversary Update will feature improvements that will reduce the battery impact of Adobe Flash, as Microsoft is looking into ways to significantly cut the battery footprint of its operating system.

    There are several changes that will be integrated into the Windows 10 Anniversary Update in this regard, and one of them is “minimizing the impact of background activity and peripheral content like Flash advertisements,” according to a post published by Microsoft.

    It would be a lot better if Flash was laid to rest permanently.

    I thought it was heading in that direction. I'm surprised MS is doing this.

    Well, that is typical Microsoft:
    A day late,
    a dollar short,
    and billions in the bank

    Seriously, they advertise how safe they're making Windows 10, and they want to keep & tweak Flash Player?

    Just because they decide to push it, doesn't mean I'm headed back to Adobe to DL it ...

    If only I could lose Java too (have a few work apps that require it) ...

    This is just stupid, plain and simple. Let it die!

    Occupy Flash - The movement to rid the world of the Flash Player plugin


    Our goal: To get the world to uninstall the Flash Player plugin from their desktop browsers.

    Why, you ask? Why does it matter, when Adobe has already neutered the platform by publicly killing Flash on mobile devices? Why does it matter when HTML5 has clearly won the fight for the future of our web browsing? Well, as we've seen with other outdated web technologies (most notably the much-lamented Internet Explorer 6), as long as software is installed on machines, there will be a contingent of decision makers who mandate its use, and there will be a requirement of continued support, the plugin will live on, and folks will continue to develop for it. Also, for unknown reasons, Adobe is still sticking with Flash as a desktop browsing technology.

    The only way to truly force the web to embrace modern open standards is to invalidate old technology.

    Now let's be clear: Disabling Flash Player in your browser will likely mean that some of the sites you use regularly are less usable (We're looking at you, Google Analytics. For shame!). Should you choose to join the movement, there will be some pain and sacrifice involved in your decision. But the more of us who run browsers that don't support Flash, the quicker that pain will subside.

    Note: This is not a campaign against Adobe, or even their Flash platform. We're sure there are plenty of good uses for it, such as building great Air applications, for example. In fact, Adobe has stated they believe HTML5 is the future of web browsing. We're simply trying to help them get there a little faster (Sidenote: Adobe, if you're reading this, how about manning-up and supporting this site, like Microsoft did with the IE6 Funeral)

    Note: this site has no corporate backing, and is not a lobbying effort of any sort. Sad that we have to say that, but the accusations have arisen.

    A Final Note: This campaign is in no way meant to belittle the efforts of the more important Occupy movements currently going on. We understand we are fairly

    I thought IE 11 and Edge have an integrated Flash.
