Firefox 3.5 is out, and, among a slew of major improvements, it now supports the HTML 5
<video> tags. I don’t post many video clips to Daring Fireball, but henceforth, when I do, it’ll be with the
<video> tag. IE users can suck it.
Update: Whoops, not so fast. The only video format Firefox 3.5 supports for use with the
<video> tag is Ogg, which almost no one uses. And so it can’t play H.264 MP4 files like the one in YouTube’s HTML 5 demo page.
