Google A few months ago, Google open sourced the VP8 video codec as part of the WebM video project, to create a truly Free/free unencumbered video format for the web as an answer to the non-Free/free patent-encumbered H264 format. Today, Google launched a new image format for the web, WebP, which aims to significantly reduce the file size of photos and images on the web.

Why do people say "You do realize" when they know the person didn't realize. You don't need to be a bitch about it

Well, no harm was meant here, excuse me if it seemed so.
(I am not a native English speaker, and as such, I do not have a good sense of wording and phrases.)

In case you find it offensive, pls just take it like it was "Note, that ..."

Oh, it's perfectly correct and normal English. It's just that when you think about what you're really saying it's a bit odd. It's like when someone says "here goes nothing" before doing something. Quite obviously, they aren't about to do "nothing," but that's what they say. There are plenty of common phrases out there that are pretty silly when you actually think about what they mean literally, and yet they're perfectly common and correct English.
