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 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.

Like draft standards that the W3C has said are not ready for production?

Yea that really compares to not being able to display png images properly and requiring endless CSS hacks. Or having the browser constantly crash when testing it.

It's IE7/8 users that will hold back HTML5, not IE9.

That's the other problem, no IE9 for Windows XP.
