Mozilla Firefox build released with support for Google WebM

Mozilla has also released a test build of their Firefox web browser that supports the Google WebM web video platform.

This feature is however not expected to become part of the regular Firefox edition for sometime now.

Mozilla seems to be planning to add support for it in Firefox 4 which is likely to arrive later this year.

Mozilla spoke about the new developments:

It is a great time to be a web developer, and there has never been a better time to be a supporter of open video on the web. Mozilla is very excited to be part of the WebM project, and to join with an impressive list of industry partners in advancing unencumbered, high-performance multimedia on the web. And, of course, we’re working to get this capability into the hands of 400M Firefox users on desktops and mobile devices alike.
