Internet & Networking Earlier this week, Apple launched a HTML5 Showcase page, displaying several uses for HTML5 and related technologies. However, it turns out that Apple is using trickery to block out browsers other than Safari, with the end result that browsers with better support for web standards than Safari can't access the demos.

Is anyone here shocked by this? Unfortunately, it probably won't mean much as this won't register with Joe Sixpack, who probably doesn't know HTML from HTTP.

In my opinion, deceptions like this should be subject to DMCA takedowns. Maybe that piece of crap legislation might have a use after all.
