Here are some example encodings I did with 1.0 vs 1.1:
I used one of our marketing videos for Firefox 3.5 because I had the
original source in a lossless format and it's pretty typical for the
kind of video that we would post on the web. Combination of animation,
talking head and white background.
In my testing the quality at the same bitrate is higher (look at the
edges of the letters in the various videos for examples) and the overall
bitrates for the same quality look much lower.
