A Web Developer's Heads Up...
Changes Coming to Internet Explorer

A recent verdict against Microsoft in a patent infringement lawsuit will bring changes to IE that will impact how the browser loads Macromedia Flash, Shochwave, Quicktime, Real Media, Adobe Acrobat and others. Microsoft has provided information about the patent infringement lausuit as well as information for developers about upcoming changes to Internet Explored at

According to an article October 27, 2003, at "The good news is Macromedia plans to release some server-side tools to allow the security mechanism to be bypassed. The bad news? Every Web site, ad server and content provider in the world will be compelled to adopt and to release this solution prior to Microsoft's release of the Explorer update that enacts the mechanism."

The article goes on to indicate "Based on my experiences watching people use the developer version of IE, the experience of Web surfing would be onerous, at best. Visit any Web page with Flash (almost every existing Web site that carries advertising uses Flash) and you'll get a series of halts, skips and jumps. The interruptions in content loading are so jarring it's almost shocking."
