Google says it is dropping H.264 in Chrome (huh? Don’t they know that H.264 won? 😉 )
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
Microsoft is firmly in the H.264 camp (with H.264 support built into Win7 they better be!), so the whole web-interface thing just got a whole lot more complicated.
Update : Opera in the hater camp too!
