Internet & Networking With yesterday's news that Google will be dropping H.264 support from the Chrome web browser, the internet was split in half. One one side, there's people who applaud the move, who are happy that Google is pushing an open, royalty-free and unencumbered video codec (irrespective of Google's motivation). On the other side, there are the H.264 supporters, who believe that H.264 is the one and only choice for HTML5 video. One of the most vocal and public figures in the latter group is John Gruber. Following his five questions for Google, here are ten questions for Gruber about WebM, H.264, and standards on the web.

1.) I think you are hyperbolic here. Won't even bother.

4.) You know why WebM is called as such? The discussion is about the future of the web.

9.) If you want your browser to use OS codecs use one that does. This whole discussion doesn't apply to you anymore.

10.) You're kidding, right? Nobody should even try to innovate then.
