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.

Still unclear

It is still unclear how good HTML5 implementations will be compared to Flash and Silverlight. Browsers have been relatively slow at rendering content so far.

Everybody complains about Flash, but we don't know yet how well comparable HTML content will be rendered. I would say HTML/CSS/JS combo is going to be much worse performance wise than dedicated RIA platforms.
