I don't know where you're getting your numbers from, but according to
Chrome, Firefox and Opera make up the majority market-share on the desktop and mobile.

Most sources seem to agree that IE is on the decline, while Safari is increasing slowly.

I support this proposal not because I think it is the best solution, but because it is the first MTI video codec proposal that the actual implementors in this technology space have even remotely agreed on since the discussion began. I support this proposal primarily because it is the only solution we have yet seen that has a credible chance of succeeding.
