YouTube has just launched an opt-in beta to support a HTML 5 instead of the flash player that we’re used to. If you’re like me you try to avoid using Flash where-ever possible, and HTML 5’s video support is a step closer to a Flash-free web.
The beta currently supports the following browsers:
- Google Chrome
- Safari (4+)
- Internet Explorer with Chrome Frame installed
If you’re using one of these browsers, jump on to the YouTube HTML 5 beta page to opt-in and start trying out the Flash-free video player.
