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.

Apple is seeking to maintain iron control over what apps you run on your iDevices. As web sites become applications, and as applications become content, they have to restrict content, which means restricting the browser you can use, and what you must use to access their sites. The next step will be restricting where the browser can go.

Yes, its mad, but its how Cupertino is.
