Requirements * Wikipedia articles and thus Wikislices can take advantage of this, and richer multimedia in Browse becomes practical.
Specification * XULRunner 1.9.1, the Mozilla code powering Firefox 3.1, should be released in the 9.1.0 timeframe.
  • Activities and content can use its new features, at the risk of incompatibility with earlier Sugar releases.
  • XULRunner 1.9.1 supports the HTML5 <audio> and <video> tags, providing the ability to play OGG audio and video files natively in the browser.

This will probably improve performance and reduce memory footprint compared with embedding the Totem plugin, the trade-off needs to be tested and Browse configured accordingly.
