Videos today are pretty common all over the Internet. Most of them are converted into flash on websites though for maximum accessibility. But wait a second, you don’t have the Adobe flash plug-in installed in your browser? Sorry….. Same expert proclaim that “it is time to break down those walls.”

The Mozilla team is expected to complete build 2 of Firefox 3.5 Release Candidate 1 in the next 24 hours but it may not see the light of day.

Firefox 3.5, which is now a very stable beta, is faster than earlier versions, and most importantly, it embraces open-source video standards and treats videos like web pages (you can’t do any of that with Flash). If this takes off, Flash video could become history.

Built into the Firefox 3.5 browser is a video player based on the open-source video formats Ogg Vorbis and Theora. The video player supports HTML5, which means that links and other interactive elements can easily be placed inside videos. Ogg Vorbis format makes video programmable.

You can now download the latest version of Firefox 3.5 Beta4 here: download
