Firefox on Windows 7 gets H.264 and MP3 support

Firefox

Good news for audio on the web: the latest nightly builds of Firefox on Windows 7 have H.264 and MP3 support enabled by default! Work is ongoing to bring these features to the Mac OS X and Linux versions.

Also, Web Audio API support is starting to appear in Firefox, starting with a preference to enable Web Audio API in about:config. AudioContext.decodeAudioData appears to be functional at this time. I look forward to finding out how far the implementation goes at this point.

And as if that wasn't enough, WebRTC is enabled on by default, too!
