No. That's not true either. Google+ is just the next level. They ask for
a Google+ account. I don't have one anymore since they blackmailed me.
Yet I still have access to stuff non Google+

NOTE: had I not deleted my G+ account they would have blocked everything
else like they did to other. In short Google Account ISN'T G+ Account.
G+ Account IS a Google Account

This is slightly OT, but reading of the 3 lines above I believe you
don't know what I'm talking about.

I was just outlined that Google have in the past promised and then not

Remove Flash. Go to Youtube. Count how many video needs to Flash. *hint*
the same one, *embedded* on a third party page work without Flash.

Exhibit 2 of the above.

Again this was just another example of Google underdelivering. But their
competition has been far worse to that respect.

Let's answer one question: is WebRTC available in the *released* version
of Firefox (currently 20) and Chrome (no idea which it is these days) ?

If you answer no to either, then you just confirmed what I was saying.

Also reading the article you linked, they actually don't talk about
implementing WebRTC since H264 isn't part of WebRTC, but rather some
superset that is not free for anyone to implement.

But this thread is slide off-topic.
