"I first blogged about webm the day Google released it. It has taken some time but now I have full support for webm in my preferred Linux desktop distro (Fedora 13). I've been doing some testing and I have to say I'm impressed.

"As you may recall, several of the web browser makers also announced upcoming webm playback support in their next major releases. So far as I know, Opera is the only browser vendor thus far that has released a production version that includes webm support (Opera 10.6). Firefox and Chrome do offer webm support in their beta releases."
