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.

Apple, in particular, are going to find that out the hard way. If you're railing against a particular technology then you'd better make damn sure there are things people actually want to access in your alternate world.


Except that YouTube is already in beta on an HTML5/non-Flash version of their site ... so there goes that argument. http://www.youtube.com/html5
