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.

I've often wondered why Google never bought Adobe. They would get the PDF portfolio, some of the best commercial design and creative software, and Flash which could easily be open-sourced at that point.

In fact, the only deterrent I can imagine is trying to avoid antitrust lawsuits and sanctions.
