Internet & Networking Ever since it became clear that Google was not going to push WebM as hard as they should have, the day would come that Mozilla would be forced to abandon its ideals because the large technology companies don't care about an open, unencumbered web. No decision has been made just yet, but Mozilla is taking its first strides to adding support for the native H.264 codecs installed on users' mobile systems. See it as a thank you to Mozilla for all they've done for the web.

Initially there were some extensive tests on comparing VP8 and H264, have they been re-done recently with the results posted online for us to check? Do you have any proof that VP8 is better than H264?

Otherwise, even Google is not claiming that VP8 is better than H264, just that they've improved by a certain percentage on a certain metric.
