Google I didn't plan on this, but there's really nothing I can do. Unless you want me to write about the upcoming ten billionth download from the iOS App Store, you'll have to settle for this. On the Chromium blog, Google has clarified its decision to drop H.264 support from the Chrome web browser, and in it, Google basically repeats the things that those concerned about the future of video on the web have been saying for a long time now: H.264 on the web kills innovation.

What you perhaps actually mean is that WebM is a standard that is not yet endorsed by any official independent standards body.

Well, if Apple had strenuously objected, perhaps by now WebM would be a standard endorsed by W3C.

I'd expect you as a business owner with your entire product line already invested in h.264 would probably do the same.
(Let's not forget WebM wasn't an option originally)
