Both Google and Mozilla have released new updates to their respective browsers in the form of Firefox 51 and Chrome 56 which brings native support for FLAC the free and WebGL 2.0 graphics.
The addition of support for FLAC means that you can now stream high-quality audio without using an external media player, as well as interact with high-performance graphics using the latest version of the WebGL standard.
To recap Firefox is a free open source browser which is maintained by the non-profit Mozilla Foundation, while chrome is maintained by Google and is not an open source software. For more information on the free FLAC lossless audio codec jump over to the official website via the link below.
FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. This is similar to how Zip works, except with FLAC you will get much better compression because it is designed specifically for audio, and you can play back compressed FLAC files in your favorite player.
