Apple posts iPhone, iPad compatible HTML 5 showcase


Apple has posted a new webpage dedicated to highlighting examples of HTML 5 in use on the web, its latest move in the ongoing spat with Adobe over Flash technology. “Every new Apple mobile device and every new Mac — along with the latest version of Apple’s Safari web browser — supports web standards including HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript,” Apple points out at the top of the page. “Standards aren’t add-ons to the web. They are the web. And you can start using them today.” The showcase offers HTML-driven examples of usage cases in which Flash is commonly employed, including video and audio playback, custom typography, transitions, VR, 360º spinning objects, and image galleries. Included at the bottom of the page are links to the Safari Dev Center, where web developers can learn more about the technologies driving the demos, as well as Apple’s iPad ready website page and CEO Steve Jobs’ “Thoughts on Flash” open letter.

I’ve heard some complaints about this only working with Safari.
What’s the big deal? We only have Safari on our iPhone, iPod or iPad.
Looks great!
