It says
HTML5 player uses less than 20% CPU power.Flash plugin already use about 40% CPU and add Safari's 10%, totally use about 50% CPU power

check this (hope its a genuine test)

So what you guys think..wont html 5 will be a real threat for flash? but some says video quality is good with flash than html?

Thank You.
