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.

Ultimately there was no good reason to not support the media frameworks that come built-in with modern OSs. And if the codec for a particular pet format isn't installed at the system level, then have browser support as a fall back.
