Microsoft weighs in on the future of the web: HTML5

RT @dougluberts: From @engadget: http://www.engadget.com/2010/04/30/microsoft-weighs-in-the-future-of-the-web-is-html5/

From Dean Hachamovitch, General Manager for Internet Explorer:

Echoing the Apple CEO’s words, Hachamovitch describes HTML5 as “the future of the web,” praising it for allowing content to be played without the need for plug-ins and with native hardware acceleration (in both Windows 7 and Mac OS X). He goes on to identify H.264 as the best video codec for the job — so much so that it’ll be the only one supported in IE9’s HTML5 implementation — before turning to the dreaded subject of Flash.
