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.

And now, the rest of the technology industry, which owes so much to Mozilla, is going to force them to abandon their ideals.


Nobody is forcing them to do anything. If they don't want to implement H.264 playback they don't need to. Their browser will not suddenly stop sucking because they implement H.264 play back.

We owe a great deal to the men and women at Mozilla.


What is this? A soap opera?
