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.

Actually, as Google now owns Motorola Mobility and part of the patens of H.264 because of it.

They should start to demand more and more license fees from everyone.

If they make H.264 more and more expensive and in the mean time more and more hardware and software support WebM.

Then maybe people will be convinced ? ;-)

Probably not though, as WebM is also controlled by Google. They wouldn't trust them anymore.
