Convenient

So Microsoft now thinks the Web is better without plug-ins (via CNet):

“Metro-style IE runs plug-in free to improve battery life as well as security, reliability, and privacy for consumers,” said John Hrvatin, Internet Explorer program manager lead, in a blog post. “A plug-in free Web benefits consumers and developers and we all take part in the transition.”

How convenient. I guess that whole push with Silverlight to de-throne Flash is over, eh?
For the record, I was wondering Silverlight’s relevance way back in 2007.
