An anonymous reader writes "Mozilla Labs has started an initiative to promote and develop gaming based on Open Web technologies. They write, 'We are excited to present to you the latest initiative from Mozilla Labs: Gaming. Mozilla Labs Gaming is all about games built, delivered and played on the Open Web and the browser. We want to explore the wider set of technologies which make immersive gaming on the Open Web possible. We invite the wider community to play with cool, new tech and aim to help establish the Open Web as the platform for gaming across all your Internet connected devices.' To that end Mozilla Labs will launch Game On 2010, a game development competition, at the end of September."

    Exactly. The battle against H.264 will end up costing them even more market share too.

    What battle? Open video is here to stay and it's usage is growing every day. Look:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLPPlRDOZx0 [youtube.com]

    You can watch that video in WebM natively in your browser with no plugins. Firefox will not only be just fine but will, in fact, be better than ever. So will Blackberry with the embrace of open audio on the Blackberry Torch 9800 and Curve 9300 [berryreview.com].

    How the fuck is this modded troll? The GP seems closer to a troll.

    Of course Mozilla, as a member of the floss community is going to promote floss and open standards, as does Google, and even Apple to an extent.

    That video wasn't recorded or edited in WebM.

    It was trancoded by YouTube - and it will play just fine in your H.264 enabled browser.

    Don't be ridiculous. There are sound legal (not idealogical) reasons why Mozilla cannot implement H.264. Patent law, basically. For you to portray that as Mozilla fighting a 'battle' is downright disingenuous.

    1] Edit->Preferences->Privacy->Location Bar->When using the Location Bar, suggest: Nothing
    2] Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Update tab->uncheck automatic update boxes
    3] you have a minor point; I'd suggest dealing with the authentication box first

    Now get back to work, Dick.

Nobody's gonna believe that computers are intelligent until they start coming in late and lying about it.
