Google Chrome to support Ogg Theora video natively

Another step towards an open web -- Google's Chrome browser is going
to support Theora video natively with the HTML5 video tag:
http://blog.internetnews.com/skerner/2009/05/google-chrome-3-adds-html5.html
http://codereview.chromium.org/115625/diff/1/2

(Mozilla has already committed to this--and funded some of our
development of video support also!--and it looks like Opera will as
well. Video site Dailymotion is now using open video as well:
http://www.0xdeadbeef.com/weblog/?p=1312 )

If it weren't for Wikimedia using it, this work probably wouldn't have
gone into enabling native browser support for it. So thanks to all for
your work on this. :-)

Cheers,
Kat

That is seriously good news and demonstrates Wikimedia's leadership in
the field yet again.

Great!

Wikipedia's pioneering extensive usage of Unicode was noticed by Unicode.

Wikipedia's consistent usage of IPA was noticed by Prof. Asher Laufer,
a phonetics researcher from HUJI. He gave it as an example of the fact
that the world is moving from diverse and incompatible phonetic
transcriptions to IPA in the introductory university phonology
textbook that he recently released.

I have seen a few articles about web design and accessibility giving
Wikipedia as an example of a site that is relatively committed to the
W3C standards.

There are more example of this kind. And now OGG.

So the "yet again" part is very true and makes me quite proud.
