edumacator writes "The YouTube sensation OK Go has just released their latest video using HTML5. The video is pretty cool itself, but the interactive feature is great." It looks like the interactive stuff only works in Chrome.

    So it's more closed-open [] bullshit from Google?

    If Chrome uses open standards and protocols, there's no reason for it to be Chrome-only. You say competitors are "left in the dust" because Chrome is developed at such an "astonishing pace" (it's easy to appear that way when you constantly bump major version numbers), but Chrome is based on the open source WebKit, the same engine Safari uses that was developed mostly by Apple. There's nothing particularly unique to Chrome except for its Javascript engine, which doesn't use some futuristic version of Javascript that nobody else can run.

    Not to mention that the claim that Chrome is based entirely on "open standards and protocols" is ridiculous--the browser ships the closed-source, proprietary Flash plug-in and supports both AAC and MP3 audio playback.

    It depends, if you look at the numbers:

    "Calculation of support for currently selected criteria" (Recommendation, Proposed Rec., Candidate Rec., Working Draft, Other):

    IE9: 58%
    Firefox 5: 84%
    Safari 5.1: 82%
    Chrome 12: 89%
    Opera 11.5: 76%

    Near Future:
    IE9: 58%
    Firefox 6: 87%
    Safari 5.1: 82%
    Chrome 13: 89%
    Opera 12.0: 79%

    Farther future:
    IE 10: 71%
    Firefox 7: 87%
    Safari 6: 82%
    Chrome 14: 88%
    Opera 12.1: 79%
