: Besides paying over half a billion dollars to the patent holder, Microsoft is supposed to cripple its market-leading browser so that IE/Windows will no longer seamlessly play Flash, Quicktime, RealVideo, or Adobe Acrobat files, Java applets, and other rich media formats.
I know this isn't news per se but it looks like plug-ins as we know them in IE (and possibly other browsers) are really going away. I don't use plug-ins normally, but that doesn't make this horrible patent ruling any easier to swallow. I wonder how much Microsoft loves patents now?
