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.

If YouTube has that much power, that is, monopolistic power, then maybe they should be broken up. Or maybe the EU can mandate that they support the 5 most popular formats for each and every video. Yeah, I went there.
