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.

Here's a direct quote from Apple's showcase page about their intentions:


They are implying that you need Safari if you want HTML5 capabilities in your browser. And they aren't even testing any HTML5 (well, a couple of things).

Heck, they even gave a half-shout out to the other side when they wrote "Not all browsers offer this support", implying that there are some browsers that do

No, they are implying that only Safari does, therefore use Safari, and Apple rocks!

when you click on the demo links it says very clearly that they need you to use Safari

...implying that you need Safari to view HTML5 content.
