HTML5 Fragmentation

It seems my HTML5 predictions have started to come true. Google will no longer support H.264 video by default in it’s Chrome browser even though H.264 has seen wide implementation on the internet.

Google decided instead to focus on supporting WebM video though it doesn’t enjoy as wide implementation on the internet as H.264. This is obviously a political move on Googles part and has resulted in the term “HTML5 Fragmentation” being coined on the interwebs…

Microsoft upon hearing this announcement however rode to the rescue and released a Chrome browser extension that re-enables H.254 video in Chrome

You can get that extension hereThanks – You’re welcome…
