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.

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


Still going with the HTML5 revolution, eh? Let me know when Hulu switches. Speaking of Hulu you should give their new Flash player a try, it's really nice.


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,


That doesn't give you the right to define what the web is. You don't have control over how two parties exchange information on the internet.


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

Well you should be fine with Silverlight then:

Also see http://lordofultima.com for what’s possible with money and professional developers.

What's possible and what is cost effective are two different things. Lord of Ultima is interesting tech but it is a turn based strategy game without animations. Using HTML5 to build something like Club Penguin would take far more work than with Flash.
