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.

Anyone who claims they do not use x264 is a liar.

I don't use it and I don't know of any internet video currently that requires it. Even if that were the case you still need a valid license to actually use it, which Firefox cannot provide or guarantee. They would have to effectively dictate what platforms you could run it on.
