    What a blatant lie! How can you possibly say “every modern browser is supporting HTML5” with a straight face when you know that FireFox doesn’t support it and IE only supports it with a Chrome extension?!?!?

    Don’t get me wrong… It sounds great. And most people using Macs are covered (via Safari). But most PC users are going to have to switch to Chrome to use it (I’m sorry, but IE is not a valid choice for the PC platform — at least not from a security standpoint). And personally, I don’t like the UI of Chrome. It is fast and lightweight, that’s cool. But the default layout is ugly in my opinion. Although I *am* glad they released a Linux version, that’s awesome.

    Exactly Meq.
    Firefox won’t use proprietary formats.

    Ralph, Firefox has been supporting HTML5 since version 3.5.

    You can have a look at FF specifications here. It supports HTML5 and even

    And I completely agree on IE standpoint.

  4. let me tell you something.. why FF didn’t support HTML5?
    because FireFox only interested in Open Format such as .ogg format.. H.264 is a closed format and the conclusion is, firefox will not be under the same roof with youtube HTML5
