   Speaking of misinformation and hyperbole, what makes you say  
"people from Apple" want to hide the fact that Safari supports third  
party QuickTime codecs? We *could* have limited WebKit to only support  
QuickTime's built-in formats, but did not specifically so customers  
can add other formats as they choose.

   We have never tried to hide this, it is ridiculous to imply
