This is not Steve Ballmer’s Microsoft. The company is bringing Google’s open-source WebM/VP9 video to Windows 10’s Edge web-browser.
It’s official. As I reported last week, Microsoft is now supporting Google’s open-source WebM/VP9 video in its Windows 10 Edge web-browser.
This move is part of Microsoft, along with Google and Mozilla, walking away from Adobe’s security hole-ridden Flash video. It also shows how Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella continues to move Microsoft from proprietary to open-source software.
