Microsoft Edge Browser to Start Automatically Pausing Flash Content

Microsoft Edge Browser to Start Automatically Pausing Flash Content

Microsoft has announced that much like Apple, Google, and Mozilla, it too is wary of Flash. The company says that it will introduce changes to its new Web browser Edge alongside the Windows 10 Anniversary Update later this year to give users more control over Flash content. The company also noted that it doesn’t see Flash being a part of Edge in the future.

In a blog post, Edge team announced that, by default, the Web browser will pause Flash content such as advertisements and peripheral animations when a user visits such a Flash-rich webpage. The company says that there are plenty of Flash alternatives that a developer can use instead.

The company urges developers to move to “a future where Flash is no longer necessary as a default experience in Microsoft Edge.” The ultimate goal is to adopt newer standards such as RTC and Web Audio. In the coming months, the company says it will work on bringing more Flash control to users.

“Flash has been an integral part of the web for decades, enabling rich content and animations in browsers since before HTML5 was introduced. In modern browsers, Web standards pioneered byMicrosoft, Adobe, Google, Apple, Mozilla, and many others are now enabling sites to exceed those experiences without Flash and with improved performance and security,” the company wrote in a blog post.

Google made a similar announcement for Chrome last year. At the time, the company noted that Flash content was impacting battery and memory hog. “This transition to modern Web standards has benefited users and developers alike. Users experience improved battery life when sites use efficient web standards, lowering both memory and CPU demands. Developers benefit as they are able to create sites that work across all browsers and devices, including mobile devices where Flash may not be available.”

Microsoft Working on Tool to Port Chrome Extensions in Edge

Microsoft Working on Tool to Port Chrome Extensions in Edge

Microsoft introduced support for extensions in Microsoft Edge for Windows Insiders in a build that was released last week. As of now, there are only a handful of extensions to play with. But very soon, we may have a plethora of extensions for the company’s Web browser. Microsoft has said that it is working on a tool to port Chrome extensions over to Edge – potentially opening the floodgates for extension makers.

Jacob Rossi, a Microsoft Edge engineer, said on Twitter that the company is working on a porting tool to bring Chrome extensions to Edge. “Lots of questions on this: yes we’re working on a porting tool to run Chrome extensions in Edge.” he tweeted. “Not yet finished and not all APIs supported.” In following up posts on the micro-blogging website, Rossing said that the company is carefully selecting extensions to bring to the Microsoft Edge Store currently.

Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14291 to Insiders on the fast ring last week. The new Windows 10 build offers users with the ability to install extensions on their Web browser. At the time, the company had only three Edge extensions to show: Microsoft Translator, Reddit Enhancement Suite, and Mouse Gestures. Over the weekend, a new extension called ‘Turn off the Lights’ became available for users. A user can utilise this extension to turn the background dark when watching a video for a better entertainment experience.

As for users who want to try Microsoft Edge extensions on their phone, Rossi noted that Microsoft Edge for Windows 10 Mobile could also get this functionality some day. Responding to a user’s query about this, Rossi wrote, “[We’re] focusing on desktop first, but it’s [extensions for mobile] not out of the question.”

Samsung S7, S7 Edge launch could trigger price war

New Samsung S7 (R) and S7 edge smartphones are displayed after their unveiling ceremony at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (pic: Reuters)The fight for dominance in the smartphones market between the two global giants — Samsung and Apple — is not new. In the past two years, the battle has spread to new territories such as India. And, with Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, offered at aggressive prices, Samsung on Tuesday opened another front.

According to industry analysts, with sales of Apple iPhone 6S and 6S Plus reaching record high in the company’s history in India, the South Korean electronics major was expected to come up with a counter strategy. While the rush for introducing the two models — S7 and S7 Edge, which Samsung believes can outpace iPhone sales — led the company to launch them within a fortnight of their international launch at Barcelona during Mobile World Congress, the pricing points of these two flagship devices have surprised many.

At Rs 48,900 and Rs 56,900 for S7 and S7 Edge, respectively, the pricing is lower than the launch price of Samsung’s previous two flagship launches of the same series — S6 (Rs 49,900) and S6 Edge (Rs 58,900) a year ago.

“The pricing this time is exciting. Usually in India, vendors bring down prices after a few months of their launches, leading to a surge in sales,” said Anshul Gupta, research director at Gartner Inc. While smartphones priced above Rs 30,000 form seven-eight per cent of the total sales, for major brands, it is a key indicator of their superior brand value. Manu Sharma, director of product marketing at Samsung India, said the decision of bringing down price was based on how many more devices they wanted to sell.

“GFK data show we hold 48.2 per cent market share in the premium segment. With this new offering, we expect to grow that further,” said Sharma.

While Samsung is known for its brand and full range product portfolio, Apple enjoys the ‘aspirational factor’ attached to its brand in India, said Faisal Kawoosa, partner, CyberMedia Research.

“The brand benefits from people’s desire to get attached with it,” said another industry analysts. To win over consumers this time, Samsung has incorporated three new India-specific innovations in its flagship devices. While in the S6 series it got rid of external storage and had single SIM card slots, in the latest devices Samsung incorporated SD card slots with capacity of up to 200 GB and Duel SIM features.

It has also improved network connectivity through signal booster, keeping an eye on the unreliable nature of network connectivity in India.
