Microsoft has announced that the future versions of Edge will be less tolerant to stray Flash content on web pages.

The browser will soon be updated to automatically pautilize all non-essential Adobe Flash content on the page; this includes animations and ads. Only essential content, such as videos and games will play automatically. This will reduce power consumption and improve performance, especially on tablets and ultrabooks.

Last year, Google announced a similar change in Chrome, and later dropped support for Flash ads entirely couple of months back.

Microsoft will be providing the updated version of Edge in the upcoming Windows 10 build 14316 onwards. The company is also encouraging web developers to go away from Flash and adopt more open web standards.
