It's sad to read that Jaca is not interested on adding media playing support to his new browser.
You can still use Odyssey for HTML5 audio and video. The main attraction of a new browser is to quickly offer functionality that is currently lacking in Odyssey due to an outdated JSCore version (our rendering part is still quite decent).
If you can, say, use text chat via Skype in the new browser while streaming music via Odyssey at the same time, that is not a bad scenario for end users.
Writing a new web browser from scratch is extremely time-consuming. Odyssey will continue to be useful for a while.
There was a time when MorphOS did not have any proper web browsers. Having two is more a luxury than a problem :)
