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.

the lie is that you don't really need safari to properly render that page. i bet most webkit based browsers would display it the right way.


Exactly. And not even just WebKit browsers--there's a decent chance Firefox would do just fine as well. Google also has this kind of site--they call it "Chrome Experiments"

...and most of them run just fine in Firefox. Plus they allow anyone to submit stuff themselves.

Just goes to show the difference in approach between Google and Apple. I know which one I prefer.
