Default 63% of Streaming Web Do Not Require Flash

"A new study shows that nearly two thirds of all streaming Web video is HTML5 compatible. In other words, Adobe Flash is no longer needed for a majority of Web content."

HTML5-compatible video aka H.264 is now comprising more than 60% of the streaming video on the Internet. MeFeedia indexed approximately 30 million videos from over 33,000 sites to come to this conclusion. Amazingly, in less than a year, over 50% of the video out there has dropped Flash as a requirement. I find I don't miss it most of the time on my laptop using Safari, but If there is something I want to see I just switch to Chrome. How about you, do you use Flash or do you find that it isn't that big of a deal not to have it installed on Safari?
