YouTube in html5, enable it now

I received this link on one of my mailing lists and thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread.  Following up on my "Flash is dead" post, you can enable Youtube.com to work in HTML5.

Go to: http://www.youtube.com/html5 and you can "opt-in".  I assume it places a cookie in your browser so that every time you try and view a video, the video plays in html5 instead of flash.  My browser doesn't run at 100% CPU or anything.  It's awesome.  Go do it now, help kill flash.

Looking forward to firefox support. That's pretty much mandatory for this house.

Are there any HD HTML5 videos? All the HD ones seem to still use flash and the "standard" HTML5 vids look like crap.

am on a fast connection and it looks great. So I am not sure.
