What I mean is, IE9 already does play Vorbis codec. Not natively, but IE9 will play that codec if you install it on a client and then have the webserver serve a WebM MIME, but not an OGG with the same Vorbis encoding.

So yeah, I agree, I like the campaign and if it has an effect that would be great, regardless of which wins (OGG or WebM is irrelevant to me). I just thought I'd point out that it would be a more effective campaign if you backed the stronger candidate that already has partial support.

Also, apple, with 4% ish browser userbase in Safari, is sort of a triviality. The don't really have any clout and will probably have ot follow suit with whatever format Microsoft, Google, and Mozilla dictate.

Yeah we debated whether we should target IE AND Safari, and decided to in the end. It makes it less of a IE-hate fest which we see enough of already and we wanted to separate ourselves from that.

Many professional pc user already use chrome or firefox. ie looses its market share day to day. And I guess half of ie's market share comes from ie6 beceause of unconscious xp users. Don't get me wrong but statistics says so. And this is(ogg support) also a good point for 2 age chrome and firefox power.

Still of course I support your site.

Shouldn't the website be about Ogg Theora vs H.264 too? You'll have the same problem with video as with sound if they don't go for Theora.

The audio tag is supported by all browsers, but the audio tag doesn't play the same audio formats in all browsers. Ogg Vorbis doesn't work in Internet Explorer or Safari, even though they have the audio tag.
