Reiterating that Internet Explorer 9 will support both H.264 and VP8 for web video, Microsoft has decided that Chrome should too. Today they’ve announced an H.264 Extension for Chrome:

…we respect that Windows customers want the best experience of the web including the ability to enjoy the widest range of content available on the Internet in H.264 format.

I’m sure they’re pleased to be returning fire from Chrome Frame. If Great Grandma Drance were still here, she’d say “This is some movie. I should have brought my good lipstick.”
