Internet Explorer I am almost flabbergasted by the spin and blunt-face upon which this news is delivered. We were just discussing the pot calling the kettle black with Apple / Adobe and now Microsoft have also come out in favour of a closed video format for an open web--IE9's HTML5 video support will allow H264 only. Update Now that the initial shock is over, I've rewritten the article to actually represent news rather than something on Twitter.

Im I hate the game these big companies play to earn most money possible not thinking about the best for their users.. Corruption and intrigues all over. Setting an open standard would calm things down a bit I believe, and provide a better and easier and more secure web experience to most users.
The company with the most money and power decides the rules.. sadly. This will cripple the web for years to come. :\
Crap. A sad day!
Viva la resistance :p
