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.

If they want to show off a standard, it should work in every browser. Period.


They are demonstrating what HTML 5 presently is in Safari and if you download WebKit Nightly even more demos can be shown.

Google did the same damn thing with YouTube for a few weeks before they opened it up.

Google is wrong as well.

I can't play H.264 Youtube videos on Epiphany as Google limits them to Chrome and Safari.

This is despite Epiphany using WebKit as well and fully supporting Theora and H.264.

User agent controls are horrible policies on today's web.
