Regarding Google’s stated explanation for dropping H.264 support in Chrome:

Though H.264 plays an important role in video, as our goal is to enable open innovation, support for the codec will be removed and our resources directed towards completely open codec technologies.

These changes will occur in the next couple months but we are announcing them now to give content publishers and developers using HTML
Pretty much all of that and what Rick said.


It's also hilarious that people attack Apple for a vertical product line in which they control everything. Yet, at the same time, Google is doing THE EXACT SAME THING. Somehow though, they've managed to convince people that they're a) "not evil" and b) still "open" though clearly not.
