Internet & Networking We've been talking about the browser ballot screen for a while now, which led to some obvious questions we couldn't answer. As it turns out (and I completely missed this), Microsoft actually posted a fairly detailed description of its proposal [.doc] on its website last Friday. It details everything from what it means not to have Internet Explorer installed to what the ballot screen will look like.

The Apple side is really no better though, with QuickTime...

Last time I checked, Apple fully pushes MPEG-4 with QuickTime, not VP7 or other proprietary codecs.

Don't they use h.264, which has a whole set of licencing requirements around it? I was under the impression that all of the video codecs aside from the OSS ones were 'proprietary.'
