The new insider build of Windows 10 includes a new feature on Edge, similar to the one already found on Chrome, it will pause Flash assets on webpages which are not the main content. This should mean far less annoying advertisements blaring from your speakers if you happen to visit an uncouth website which features that type of advertisement. It is also a step in the right direction for security, considering Adobe has posted yet another critical update for a gaping security hole in Flash. You can follow the links from Slashdot to grab the update if you wish, or delve into the morass of comments about this update.
"Microsoft Edge will "intelligently auto-pause" Flash content that is "not central to the webpage." If you want to try this out now, you can take the feature for a spin with Windows 10 build 14316, which was recently made available to Windows Insiders"
