    "Breaks HTML5 Standards. So Microsoft..."

    January 26, 2011  |   By zunipus


    It's a free alternative Web browser


    It doesn't follow the HTML5 standard; Google version-jacking


    What can you say when a company gives away a web browser that breaks Web standards? I say: No thanks. Specifically, Google decided all on their own to DUMP the FREE, no royalty fees, H.264 video standard from Chrome in favor of an incomplete, lame alternative they like better for reasons no one outside of Google can comprehend. This is yet-another Microsoft-style-move. Here they are version-jacking Chrome into the stratosphere, and now they're preventing users from being able to render and use HTML5 standard web pages. No thank you Google! Not interested! Time for a new CEO! Oh yeah, you DO have a new CEO! I hope he stops this stoooopidness.
