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.

Yes they (W3C) should grow some balls and make a definitive decision! What did they expect would happen by not deciding on a codec for HTML5 video?! I can see the HTML5 video being a total screw-up - same as when the web became popular - everybody (browser creators) for the own "standard" and the public must suffer.
