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.

That is because Apple and Microsoft are the problem. Apple and Microsoft implement neither Theora, Vorbis nor VP8 in their browsers. Google is guilty of being a half-hearted part of the solution, not of being part of the problem.
