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.

Given that, the only thing Apple seems to be showcasing is their walled-garden mentality. Does anyone know what the browser marketshare looks like among macs? I ask because it makes me wonder just how many of Apple's own users they are alienating here...

I think Safari holds like 70-80% there, but this figure has been pulled out of my ass, so don't hold me to it.

I wouldn't be surprised. Chrome has only recently become stable on Mac and I'm unsure about the Firefox experience over there.

Apparently your ass is not all that reliable. It turns out Firefox is pretty much neck and neck with Safari on the Mac.
