An anonymous reader follows up to yesterday’s Google announcement that they would drop H.264 support from Chrome. “Thomas Ford, Senior Communications Manager, Opera, told Muktware, ‘Actually, Opera has never supported H.264. We have always chosen to support open formats like Ogg Theora and WebM. In fact, Opera was the first company to propose the tag, and when we did, we did it with Ogg. Simply put, we welcome Google’s decision to rely on open codecs for HTML5 video.’”
