Google A few days ago, Google opened up a YouTube area on its product ideas website, so that people could submit their ideas about how to improve the ubiquitous video website. It turned out it was a bit of a can of worms Google opened there: everything focussed on HTML5 video support.

Flash maintained its 98% penetration for something like a decade before it started playing video. The video tag has great merit, but you're going to be sorely disappointed if you think it'll be the end of Flash. html5 video won't even make a dent in Flash.


Even a dent of a dent is fine with me. Really, the only thing I care about with flash is video. And just on a couple sites, at that. Even if just 0.1% of the net moves over, I'll be thrilled if it's the 0.1% I actually care about. If a site's using flash, for, say an intro or navigation menus it's usually not one I want to go to in the first place.
