For badly supported things like H.264 ? gstreamer works(can be an interface to ffmpeg). For brand new stuff ? Well most web-smiths have to support old browsers like IE6 or IE7. For marketing because we are the browser with tons of features ? Well I think so. I think Netscape did the same mistake in the browser-war, why change things?</p> - -On social media : <a href="https://friendica.eu/display/5a727f9b125643c641caf1e584230451">Fediverse(Friendica, Diaspora, GnuSocial, …)</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/lanodan/status/664576292805849088">Twitter</a> +<p>Apparently since like… middle-late 2016 Mozilla Firefox is now better in Nightly than ESR.
