Chrome's lack of support for H.264 is meaningless for the open web

By RJ Owen
January 14, 2011

Yesterday Google announced that future versions of its Chrome browser would not support the H.264 video codec. This codec is seen by many as the only viable alternative to Flash, and support for it in browsers as the default implementation for the <video> tag was thought to be the future of the web. Google's decision to drop H.264 in favor of WebM yesterday has left many feeling upset, decrying the decision as bad for the open web and a sign that Flash Player will not actually die in the near future, but live on. Yet Google's decision is ultimately unimportant to the open web. There is one simple reason for this: Firefox doesn't support H.264 either.
