WebM Labs release

May 20th, 2010

As you have probably already heard, yesterday Opera released a Labs build with WebM support. You can find out more details in our Labs announcement, Opera dev article or Philip Jägenstedt’s blog post (Philip leads our HTML5 video effort).

This post is provided to give you all a place to share your thoughts on this historic announcement. However as always, stay on topic. Comments should be about video support (specifically WebM video support). Remember that Labs releases are not snapshots, they serve to demonstrate new and ground breaking features we are working on. That said, they still are not meant for regular usage, since they do share the same potential for serious bugs as the snapshots do.
