Because of the Eolas patent crap, Microsoft

Because of the Eolas patent crap, Microsoft is updating Internet Explorer so that you need to click to “activate” any Flash or Quicktime applet. There’s a workaround that involves replacing all your <object> <embed> and <applet> tags with JavaScript functions that write those tags. This is going to make a lot of web sites a pain in the ass to use with IE and developers are going to have to modify a lot of code. What a nightmare. (thx, dunstan)
