Video Support is Augmented
Firefox 3.5 handles video much better than any previous release, particularly with support for Open Video. In addition to the HTML 5 video tag, Firefox 3.5 ships with the Ogg Theora codec. This means that without a plugin, you can watch any video that is encoded using Ogg Theora. Theora files can be embedded directly into web pages, giving viewers all the standard controls they’re used to, like volume adjustment, pause, etc. In addition, depending on the video source, you can right-click and save the video clip to your hard drive.
