But buried in their post is another interesting nugget worth
highlighting by itself: WebM plugins are coming shortly for Safari
This is both humorous and terrifying on a few levels. First and
foremost, the point of all of this H.264/WebM stuff is so that the
web can shift to an HTML5 video standard going forward. Of course,
since neither IE nor Safari will support Google’s, Mozilla’s,
and Opera’s preferred codec for that standard, we’re right
back to plugin land! Why don’t we just call WebM, Flash 2.0?
