"click To Activate" Is Going Away!


Recommended Posts

Computerworld reports that starting next month, an update to Internet Explorer will no longer force users to "click to activate" Flash and other multi-media content. This is great news for people who include Flash content!

 

Here is the article (I TinyURL-ed it because the actual URL is quite long):

Yes except for the times when things don't work properly in Firefox or Opera or Maxthon, then IE works. I have a situation where I bought Trillian after trialling it for a while. When I went to access my yahoo mail from the notification link from Trillian, you just click and select, all I get is a page error. Something in Maxthon (based on Firefox) won't work correctly. Set the browser default back to IE6 and works again. So there are times when it does come in handy.

 

Still use Maxthon most of the time (Thanks Bill Kish for suggesting it to me).

Wait, you can REMOVE IE now? Cool! I thought it was part of the system like in earlier versions.

I tried removing it from 95 an I had to reload windows.

IE can not be removed but you can always have windows use another browser as default I think the people earlier in this thread mean.

 

 

Actually, I use a system (at home, that is) that I can remove the install of Internet Explorer. I run Kubuntu at my house, and I love it (Kubuntu, that is, not IE). I have IE on a linux box so I can see how a site will look in it. I hate having to code for an inferior web browser, so I just do work-arounds to please M$.
