No matter, that’s more flexible anyway. Based on this conclusion, I dove into the API and created an Ext JS wrapper that supports interactions with the Web Speech API. You can try out an example, and grab the source on GitHub.About the API

I've read alot of articles on the interblog in which people claim that Google's new browser, Chrome, will hurt Firefox, rather than Internet Explorer.
