Microsoft helps Chrome, says IE9 will support WebM

IE9 Beta
Looks like Microsoft is taking up the job of making the perfect browser very seriously. It doesn't want to make any mistakes with the upcoming version of the Internet Explorer, the release candidate of which will be released on the 10th of this month. A couple of days ago, Microsoft said that it would release a plugin for Chrome which would enable support to play H.264 videos on the browser. Microsoft had released a similar plugin for Firefox earlier. Microsoft also said that IE9 would fully support third party WebM plugins. Users will just have to install a VP8 codec on their PC. WebM is an audio-video format designed to provide high-quality open video compression format for use with HTML5 video. WebM project is sponsored by Google.
