The article reports that Microsoft Corp. will remove a feature from Internet Explorer 7 that requires Internet users to authorise the running of multimedia software components when visiting web pages. Pete LePage, a senior product manager at Microsoft, confirmed that this does not change anything for web developers and designers and the web pages will still work in the same way that they did before. In April 2006, Microsoft made a change to how Internet Explorer handled embedded controls used on some webpages. Microsoft has now licensed the technologies from Eolas, removing the "click to activate" requirement in Internet Explorer.
