Doing a Microsoft!!1!
LOL. This just crashes my copy of Safari!!
This is very reminiscent of the old Microsoft; the internet our way and only using our technology approach of IE5.5/IE6.
Apple appear to have initiated the Douche protocol
HTML5 will be nice when it's finialised and implemented/supported properly. All this we'll only support these elements, while another browser will only support those elements is going to ruin it.
I recently wrote a HTML5 video implemention script in jQuery, which has necessary fallbacks depending on what technology you are using, what should be a; <VIDEO>...</VIDEO> type affair has MUTATED into a massive script that utilises QT, MP4, OGG, FLASH, VIDEO tags, and a JPG/TXT area for appropriate messaging...
i like HTML5 because it tells the browser what to do and not the other way round. They should then say YOU WILL use these codecs. It's tough if you don't like them, we're trying to standardise things here and you're all f*cking it up!!
