Reprehensible? Mozilla (and all the rest) supports those same "open
web" features through its plugin architecture. Why don't you make a
stand and shut down compatibility with plugins from flash, quicktime
and others? How long would Firefox last in the market if it were
incompatible with those? Honestly.
