Google This, people, is a big one. Remember all the articles we had on Theora, H264, and which codec is better suited for HTML5 video? Well, it seems that Google has officially decided to put some serious weight behind... Theora. What they're doing is a baby step, but one specific aspect of that baby step is very important: Google is openly stating that Theora is free of patents.

I think "Google To Bundle Flash With Chrome" is Google's answer to the Mozilla team's plan to have Firefox monitor plugin versions and auto-disable ones with known vulnerabilities.

(Google's big on the whole "silently install updates" thing. Bundling Flash allows them to ensure that security updates get installed as soon as they're available)
