Internet & Networking Ever since it became clear that Google was not going to push WebM as hard as they should have, the day would come that Mozilla would be forced to abandon its ideals because the large technology companies don't care about an open, unencumbered web. No decision has been made just yet, but Mozilla is taking its first strides to adding support for the native H.264 codecs installed on users' mobile systems. See it as a thank you to Mozilla for all they've done for the web.

This is about value-adding fees on top of the content itself.

In another time and place, this would be called "taxing" and "fleecing". But adding additional, unnecessary costs to an item these days is called "value add".

I'm starting to get on the "old" side of the population...
