Woo hooo! 🙂

“Back in April 2006, we made a change to how Internet Explorer handled embedded controls used on some webpages. Some sites required users to “click to activate” before they could interact with the control. Microsoft has now licensed the technologies from Eolas, removing the “click to activate” requirement in Internet Explorer. Because of this, we’re removing the “click to activate” behavior from Internet Explorer! ”

Great news! I was hoping everyone would have used a JS library to bypass the issue but there are a ton of people still using Object/Embed. Either way…it doesn’t matter anymore! 😉
