Internet Explorer I am almost flabbergasted by the spin and blunt-face upon which this news is delivered. We were just discussing the pot calling the kettle black with Apple / Adobe and now Microsoft have also come out in favour of a closed video format for an open web--IE9's HTML5 video support will allow H264 only. Update Now that the initial shock is over, I've rewritten the article to actually represent news rather than something on Twitter.

OS X, Windows and Linux all have h264 support so FF needs to suck it up and use the codec on the OS.

Except that Linux doesn't have a license for H.264. As such it's still illegal in the US and anywhere where software patents are valid.
