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.

Opera invented the video tag. Apple invented the canvas tag. Microsoft invented ContentEditable and XMLHTTPRequest.

The web is the sum of healthy competition with browser vendors coming up with ideas and providing them in a way everybody can implement.

Total IE domination ensured that there was no more features for the web, which is why Flash became the mainstay for video. The healthier market we have now immediately shows the difference with how quickly features are being adopted across all browsers. Had we had a healthy market back in 2003, then there’s no reason to not believe that HTML video couldn’t have been implemented then. Microsoft could have not cared less, was the problem.
