Submission + - Wild Fox, Firefox with h.264 HTML 5 support (

Elledan writes: Only two countries in the world have software patents which make it impossible to freely use video codecs such as AVC (h.264). This has led to projects such as Firefox not including AVC support with the HTML 5 video tag in all their releases, resulting in the rest of the world having to indirectly suffer the effects of software patents as well. To rectify this situation at least somewhat, I have created the Wild Fox project which aims to release Firefox builds with the features previously excluded due to software patents, which will be available to those in non-software patent encumbered countries. Any developers who wish to join the project are more than welcome.
