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.

EDIT: From the other comments, I see now that Apple has used WebKit-specific tags. Epic fail. But that still doesn't take away from my main point, which is that this showcase page is not about HTML5 but about Safari, nor for that matter does using WebKit-specific tags mean that the page doesn't test HTML5 rendering capability (for Safari).

I agree with your initial assessments, both the part about Apple not intentionally lying and that this post is Anti-Apple FUD.

As to the fact that they use webkit tags mixed in with HTML5 I don't see the big deal. After all this is a showcase of HTML5 AND Safari, that is pretty clear from the showcase page.

All this Apple lying talk and Opera's whining just sounds like sour grapes from a bunch of Anti-Apple types.

I am no Apple fanboy but this is ridiculous.
