Apple I've been meaning to write this for some time, and for all the time I delayed the more poignant the point I wanted to make started to become as new news came out further solidifying my angle. When I begun writing this article the iPad had not yet been revealed, iPhone OS 4 was not on the map and Apple had not yet purchased Lala. You've probably just noticed that all of these events in fact point toward Apple embracing the web more and in this article I will point out why this is not the case because I believe Apple's agenda here is similar to something we've already seen in recent history.

Also: http://smokescreen.us/demos/sb110demo.html (Chrome is fastest).

HTML5 can implement Flash, but Flash can’t implement HTML5 ;)


At least have the cahoons to test against WebKit Nightly. Good gawd, both the iPhone and releases Safari are 6 months or older.

Wake me up when WebKit2 is in release mode for Safari and then try and brag that Chrome is fastest.

Who cares what's fastest at some future point? All that matters is what's fastest right now. You don't see Guiness adding world records for things that haven't happened yet.

Hang on, you miss read my comment. I wasn’t browser bashing I was literally stating that people who would like to view the link should ideally use Chrome because for me it was the only browser that could play it real time and Firefox was terribly slow. I was assuming released browsers and not nightlies.

It wouldn't be the first time Mr Colgate misreads something. He jumps in any discussion that has a faint smell of apple criticism to defend the Holy Company ;) )

I think that's a bug that only shows up in Firefox, not a performance problem.

It seems to be running abysmally slowly (1 or 2 FPS), but if you check the CPU usage, you'll find it's hardly doing anything.

If you refresh it a couple of times, it might start working properly. If the sound works, the animation works pretty well too.

Seriously... how many people use nightly builds versus released versions?
