    oh don't worry. He'll develop an extension for it within 30 seconds of writing this that will be merged back into core firefox, thus giving him the confidence to apply for the job openings at mozilla.
    I had to do it.

    No browser has support for this, not even Chrome.

    Do it. Make firefox the first, opera supported WebM (google format) before chrome, have us beat them both to it.
    I had to do it.

    What I meant was a GUI for the converter, not the actual code that would allow Firefox to render the images. That is also out of my league
