Multimedia, AV Microsoft has released a Windows Media Player plugin for Firefox. The plugin obviously only works on Windows. "We couldn't respond as quickly as we would have liked to (we had to get Windows Vista out the door!), but now that it's shipped, the team has moved its attention to getting Firefox users up and running. This week we are happy to say that we have a new plug-in for Firefox that makes WMP work once again."

"

they are digging their own grave. The name of the game now is cross-platform portability; That's why web 2.0 is on the rise. If they can't make their technology platform independent; they're screwed. The smart guys like adobe, who make their products multi-platform, will prevail at the end
"

We're talking about a Windows application now supporting embedding in FF, not a media standard (like Adobe with Flash / PDFs).
