    1) Watchseries and tv-links are much better websites.

    2) Possibly. It depends on if they get whitelisted or not.

    I don't think there exists such a public list. Flash works on mainstream sites in Metro IE, but Flash works on ALL sites on the Desktop IE.

    I do wish Microsoft has a public list, that one could petition to be included in. It would be also nice if the supported Silverlight, their own tech.

    Does Internet Explorer 10 [On Windows RT] have Silverlight - Microsoft Community

    RT just supports a subset of Flash. Unlike Pro, the Metro and 'Desktop' IE are one in the same.

    Unless I am missing what you mean, that is not true. The start screen IE 10 and desktop IE 10 are not the same thing. One is a sandboxed (and quite fast) subset of IE 10 and the other is the ARM version of the x86 release running on the RT legacy desktop.

    That is what I initially thought as well. And still hope for. But the moderators on the microsoft forums have repeatedly stated that the desktop version of IE on ARM supports no plugins (full flash, silverlight, anything). I sincerely hope they are misinformed.

    No I've heard that it does have all of those things. Will the metro IE be able to link to desktop? For quickly switching to use plugins?

    "I wanted to clarify with you, Internet Explorer 10 in Windows RT does not support any browser add-ons including Silverlight."
