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.

Different people, different experiences, and all that. But from my use, I've never actually seen moonlight work on anything I tried that wasn't specifically designed for it. Every time I've seen something done for silverlight, it hasn't worked in moonlight. It's great that if someone puts some extra work into their code, they might be able to make it cross platform. But the reality is that when it comes to silverlight nobody does.

And they shouldn't have to. If something's cross platform, it should work across all platforms without essentially needing a half port.
