Mozilla & Gecko clones This week, both YouTube and Vimeo opened up beta offerings using HTML5 video instead of Flash to bring video content to users. Both of them chose to use the h264 codec, which meant that only Safari and Chrome can play these videos, since firefox doesn't license the h264 codec. Mike Shaver, Mozilla's vice president of engineering, explained on his blog why Mozilla doesn't license the h264 codec.

Well there are solutions to that particular problem (often called deep linking) like my unFocus.HistoryKeeper ;-) - but that problem exists for so many Ajax applications as well. Just take a look at one of the map websites, like google maps.
