Google’s first example of “leapfrogging” Apple (in the words of Gizmodo) comes from saddling its fast new Android mobile browser with a Flash plugin that makes Apple’s year old iPhone 3GS faster overall than the brand new Nexus One, despite the latter’s significantly faster new CPU. Without Flash, Google could brag (at least for a couple more weeks) about having a speedier edge in mobile browsing. This is why, you’ll recall, Steve Jobs really does love Flash: it’s an albatross around the necks of all who target it.
If VP8 delivered what Google promised it does, it would be a no-brainer for Apple to adopt it, just as if Flash actually delivered for mobiles what Adobe promised it would. The problem is that both Flash and VP8 have serious problems that their proponents are failing to acknowledge. Those drawbacks are so serious that Apple wants nothing to do with either. And both VP8 and Flash desperately need Apple’s support to become useful to mobile users.
