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.

Apple doesn't want you to be able to directly compare their HTML5 implementation on samples that they provide with other browsers. That gives them the ability to implement "reality distortion" about what HTML5 "is". Frankly, very sleazy. But did you expect anything different from Cupertino? It's not about the open Web or you or freedom or whatever. It's about Apple controlling every possible toll booth on the Internet.
