        Oh great! I wasn't sure if Microsoft was going to do this. They are even planning to support Vorbis. This is exciting! With the latest improvements in HTML5 support in Edge over the last week, it looks like Microsoft may actually be serious about competing at the level of Chrome and Firefox.

        @Jay Tuckey: They are doing exactly that:
        Opus support reads "Roadmap priority: High — We intend to begin development soon", while
        Vorbis support reads "Roadmap priority: Medium — Development is likely for a future release."

        @The Only: Thank you for voting, and please pass word around so that more people vote for this too! In addition to Opus being royalty free, it is also the most efficient and versatile audio codec available right now. The difference in audio quality between Opus versus MP3 or AAC is huge with some audio samples (particularly nature sounds), it does a terrific job with speech, and it has very low generational losses. Opus also supports live streaming directly through a web browser, which is great for online radio streaming.

        I too am really hoping Microsoft stops lagging behind and actually starts supporting newer technologies like these!

        3 votes for this excellent suggestion! I would like to put all 25 of my votes towards this, Opus is so good. I have been using this audio format a lot for several years now due to its superb audio quality, and recently found out that I have over 2000 Opus audio files totaling over 10 GB on my computer.

        Microsoft, let me be specific: This is a request for Internet Explorer <AUDIO> tag support for Opus and Vorbis. While you're at it, please add support for Opus and Vorbis to Windows as well, so WMP and DirectShow based players can play these files too. And don't forget to add an MCI extension in the registry so that legacy MCI players can piggyback onto the DirectShow decoder.

                      On December 15th of 2011 Microsoft made a big change that largely goes unnoticed by the vast majority of users; updates to Internet Explorer began to happen automatically.

                      Today, Microsoft continues to install the latest updates for Internet Explorer supported by the user’s operating system without getting in the way. With Internet Explorer 10 we also added a UI control to the “About Internet Explorer” window which gave the end-user easier control over this process.

                      Understandably there are some situations in which auto-updates are not desired. For instance, enterprise customers may (and do) choose to opt-out of these updates due to a reliance upon older versions of Internet Explorer internally.

                      Tasked with supporting legacy applications, while also supporting the advancing web, the Internet Explorer team developed Enterprise Mode for Internet Explorer 11. This feature is designed to grant the user all of the security and speed of a modern browser,…

                      Some of those older versions of Internet Explorer are due to piracy of Windows, which stops automatic updates from updating Windows components, including Internet Explorer. The large percentage of IE8 users are from XP, since that's the newest IE they can install.

                      I would suggest that web developers stop intentionally supporting older (<10) IE versions. If it works in Chrome, Firefox and Safari, ship it. Rather than to keep waiting for Microsoft to address the issue, force the issue of standards compliance (something that IE has always lagged in) by instructing old IE users to download a standards compliant (and more safe) browser like Firefox or Chrome to see the web page correctly.

                      IE8 is a very unsafe, slow, and incompatible web browser to use. These people simply need educated to install Firefox or Chrome until they upgrade their computers. Websites displaying an educational message to that effect and supplying a link to mozilla.org would be a great way to do this. I regularly update XP machines to Firefox, and the improvement in both looks and speed is obvious. Spread the word!
