Web 2.0 A quick round up of various web-related news items. First up, a new open source product entitled the "Highgate media suite" will bring OGG video decoding to Silverlight. Microsoft have just joined the SVG working group (arguably 10 years late, but it's better than nothing). Adobe promise significant improvements in Flash 10.1, including Core Animation rendering on OS X and lowered CPU usage. Finally, CoperLicht--a WebGL JavaScript 3D engine (Quake in JS will be here one day)

Instead of making Silverlight at all, they should have first maxed out standards support in IE


But what's the business case for improving IE, for Microsoft?

It's not like it's a source of revenue, and they can't really use it to subvert the web anymore. They need Silverlight for that.
