More Bling to Microsoft Bing with Video Homepage

Bing has enabled HTML5 video in their homepage today. Previewed long ago in the IE9 launch event, this feature had got so many eyeballs and users had been demanding the launch of HTML5 Bing since then. Eventhough all the HTML5 features previewed then have not been completely enabled, this is a welcome move. The HTML5 video in the homepage is a beautiful time lapse video from Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. Bing has said in a blog post that it will be programming new videos only on special occasions. Today's video marks the occasion of the start of Autumn season in US.

This feature is currently available in the Bing US page only. You can access it here.
