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.

What if Google do release VP8 as free, how are they going to support IE9 users? With a plugin to install? We’ve gone right back to 2000 again.

Microsoft’s decision will affect every person who uses the web for the next 10 years.


Decision to not include VP8? I thought the issue was Theora.

Who has the #1 video site and can push any codec? MS or Google?

Anyone else notice how long Chrome for Linux has been in Beta?

The FOSS crowd really needs to stop buying into Google's pillow talk.
