      I'm surprised Firefox didn't have FLAC for ages already, though I guess Nightly (which I use) probably did.

        It's not like the net is full of FLAC sources, so it's understandable this wasn't high priority.

          Finally! Excellent choice. I hope for native webgl api also in windows operating systems.

            It should be renamed to GoogleGL. Pretty much nothing but Google uses it.

              Does that mean Firefox 51 will play slither.io (a 2D javascript/canvas, maybe, game) better than Firefox 50 does?

                AJAX was also used exclusively by Google while the others (*cough*Microsoft*cough*) couldn't figure out what to do with it.

                  What's the status with mp3 support? The patents have apparently expired now that Fedora is enabling it.
