Microsoft’s Windows 10 Anniversary update is an upcoming Windows 10 update that’s also named “Redstone 1”, and will come with some changes related to the Microsoft Edge browser.

One of its welcome changes revolved around how Microsoft Edge will handle Flash content. A few days ago, the Edge team explained to the users how they will have more control over the Flash content that runs on their Microsoft Edge browser.

According to the Edge team, once this update is released for Edge, it will automatically pause content that is not essential to the web page. So, content like advertisements and animations that are built with Flash will be displayed in a paused state unless the user clicks it. This will significantly reduce power consumption and improves the overall performance of the Microsoft Edge browser. However, keep in mind that Flash content located in the central of the page, such as games or videos, will not be paused.

Microsoft is trying to force developers and users away from the bugged Flash towards newer, more open Web standards such as Canvas, Web Audio, and RTC. The American multinational technology company headquartered in Redmond, Washington also confirmed that in time it plans to add even more user controls for Flash.

Microsoft’s Windows 10 Anniversary update will be available free for all Windows 10 users and is expected to be released sometime this summer.
