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.

But small and medium developers with experience in Adobe technologies and .net are not going jump on the javascript bandwagon unless forced.

Force is being applied. The news has been filled from even before Apple launched the iPad. The writing has been on the wall.

You don't have the authority to define what the web is.

Yes I do! Because it’s an open platform that I can and do contribute to. I can contribute to the source code of various web browsers, I can participate in the HTML5 process and have mailed Hixie on occasions. I help test HTML5 features on my site and I teach others how to use it. I define the web because I use it. That applies to us all. The web is all of us, not only Adobe, or only Microsoft, or only Apple.

That is a right you have declared in your head, not one that actually exists as part of some internet charter.

Equality and freedom from discrimination is a human right and accessibility for disabled persons on the web is legally protected in the UK.

If you don't like the services being offered through Flash or any other proprietary technology then don't use it.

I don’t.

Online games especially make use of Flash and if you have such a problem with it then start coding those Javascript alternatives. Have fun with that.

I have. I didn’t have time to finish these projects off, but none the less, they exist and I made them way before people thought it was possible.

Also see for what’s possible with money and professional developers.
