Internet Explorer Microsoft added a couple of new Christmas themed HTML5 demos to their IE9 test drive site which included Vorbis audio in addition to the AAC audio in the audio tags. They've since modified both demos to remove the Vorbis audio. It seems Microsoft is happy to use Vorbis in HTML5 pages internally, just not publicly.

I still don't consider IE9 a next-gen browser. I think it is more like the new IE6. ;)

I'm just glad with anything new they support.

Although all those Windows XP IE-users are still stuck on IE8. So who really cares at this point in time.

IE9 is to be released somewhere in 2011 I think.

Maybe Windows XP users will be less then 50% by then. Although not all are using IE ofcourse. :-)

You've never had to support IE6 then.

I did, still do.

What I meant is, IE9 will be behind the rest again. Just like IE6 was and it will prevent developers from implementing things they can already do with other browsers.
