Google The revolution has begun! Web video will be freed from the shackles of the MPEG-LA and the dreaded claws of patents and incomprehensible licenses! Sorry, I got a little carried away there. Anywho, YouTube has announced all new videos uploaded to the site will be transcoded into WebM, and that the most important part of the site's catalogue is already available in WebM.

Just saying non-trivial numbers of users may stay back for a release or two.

4.0 changed a LOT under the hood and new code always brings new bugs.


Chrome users all get upgraded by Google without their consent.

At least Firefox gives you the choice to upgrade.

Bear in mind that Firefox 4 IS a compelling upgrade.

PS: Also bear in mind that as of now: "All New YouTube Uploads Transcoded to WebM" so Firefox users will need Firefox 4.
