I found another link as well, directly from Abobe:

Flash still sucks. I tried some Theora video sites just to see what it was like. I'd say it was around 1/4 or 1/5 the resource usage to watch the same thing as an equivalent Flash. I can't believe how much better HTML 5 and Theora is over Flash. There is no comparison.
Like I say, if these standards take over http://youtube.com
and such, the web is going to be a much better place than it is right now. If http://youtube.com
switched to Theora and HTML 5, I would not even *bother* to install Flash.
Don't take my word for it, see for yourself:
