@Michael B - easy to disable Flash

You miss the point - by including it and having it enabled by default, web designers can assume that anyone running that browser has Flash available.

The designers typically use different code for different devices, so while the Safari version will assume no flash, the Edge version will assume flash is present. Sites with Flash will probably break if you try to visit them in Edge with Flash disabled, because they will ignore the small percentage of people who change their defaults.
