Google ditches H.264 support in Chrome

Google may be one of the world's most respected tech companies, but it could learn a thing or two from Apple. One lesson: surprises are supposed to be good.

Yesterday, Google surprised the world with an announcement that it is dropping support for the popular H.264 video codec. Not surprisingly, this sparked an outcry from many publishers and users who now know: the codec wars are on.


You know what freezes over: IE9 and HTML5

HTML5 is the future of the internet. At least that's the impression you might get from those who believe HTML5 will solve major challenges associated with everything from building cross-platform RIAs to mobile multimedia delivery.

But is HTML5 destined to be dead on arrival?


12 reasons Chrome OS will fail

Yesterday, Google held a press conference at its Mountain View headquarters to provide the world with an update on its new operating system, Chrome OS.

A lot of new details were forthcoming, which have have been well-covered by others. The questions on everyone's mind: is Chrome OS the real deal? Where does it fit in? How will it impact the OS market. My answers: it isn't, nowhere, it won't. Here are 12 reasons why Chrome OS is going to fail.

That product is Google's browser, Chrome.


Internet Explorer 8: a review

The latest update to Microsoft's browser was released yesterday, with features like Accelerators and web slices added to improve on the previous version.

The browser wars continue

What browser do you use? If you're the average internet user, you use Microsoft's Internet Explorer. It came bundled with your PC and you never found a compelling enough reason to switch.
