Apple Very good news out of Cupertino just now. It took quite a bit of negative press, but Apple has finally caved in: the company is dropping its restriction on third-party development tools for iOS. Also, the company has published all its App Store review guidelines out in the open for the first time. It took a little too long, but very good news nonetheless.

Question: Why does Apple allow web browsers on iOS?

HTML is downloaded code...
JavaScript is downloaded code...
CSS could almost be called code...

Apple is supporting HTML5 which also includes:
* <canvas> which requires a JavaScript to do the drawing.
* MathML which is a coding standard for writing math formulas.

Most of the advances in HTML5 where around making the DOM easier to change via JavaScript and the addition of new events that can trigger JavaScript functions.

If you can't download code... How can you allow JavaScript in a browser?
