Internet & Networking Microsoft did two things today. First, it released an H.264 plugin for HTML5 video for Google's Chrome web browser which makes use of Media Foundation. The usefulness of this plugin is limited, however, since it's only for Windows 7 users. Much more interesting is that Microsoft has opened the door to out-of-the-box WebM/VP8 support in Internet Explorer 9.

No, just... fighting to support something that doesn't want to support them, like classic Amiga users.

They exist, but there's no reason to hold back everyone else.
Hell, why would anyone use Internet Explorer in the first place???

Seriously, Microsoft doesn't care about XP any more, give it up. Leave Windows, or upgrade. It's over. The battle is lost.
