The Codec Wars

I have been trying to follow the HTML5 video saga very carefully as any Internet Developer should.  The latest movement on this front is Google are planning to drop H.264 as a supported <video> codec on it’s Chrome Browser (Which I have learned to love) in favor for their own WebM.  This again is going to fragment the movement to make all all HTML5 standardized.  While I believe what Google had done is good by merit I don’t see how is going to work with it’s mere 10% market share, but hey, power to them.
Let’s see how it all unfolds!
