Microsoft Edge disables Flash

It's always amusing when Microsoft anounces something that's been around for ages as if it was some brand new innovation only coming out of Redmond, in this case flash blocking.

"One of our top priorities in building Edge has been that the web should be a dependably safe, performant, and reliable place for our customers"

The web isn't the problem, it's the innovative desktop on the other end that isn't.

"To that end, we're introducing a change to give users more control over the power and resources consumed by Flash"

Thank you Microsoft for allowing me to switch off flash videos on my computer.
