Google Only a few days ago, we discussed the most popular YouTube feature request: HTML5 video support. Apparently, a lot of people want a version of YouTube that doesn't depend on Flash (me being one of them), and now Google has honoured their request with the HTML5 YouTube beta. Sadly, video quality needs a lot of work, and in spite of the original feature request, it's using h264 instead of Theora.

Odd, for me it's using about 15-20% CPU with Safari on a 2 year old Macbook (2,1GHz Core2Duo). I'm using Snow Leopard if that makes any difference?

*edit*
And the flash version uses ~20% (safari) + ~60% (flash plugin). And it runs less smooth...
