Google Counters Appleâs HTML5 Showcase With HTML5Rocks (Yes, Itâs Really Called That)

,----[ Quote ]
| Earlier this month, Apple unveiled a new 
| site to showcase HTML5. On it, Apple showed 
| off a number of impressive web demos coded 
| using only HTML5 technologies. However, at 
| least on the main page, these demos were 
| restricted to working on only Appleâs 
| Safari web browser. So now Google is 
| countering with its own HTML5 site â 
| called, get this, HTML5Rocks.

3 questions for Apple and HTML5


Mozilla evangelist: Apple HTML5 demos harm the open Web

,----[ Quote ]
| Apple recently launched an HTML5 showcase
| on its official website with several demos
| that are intended to highlight some of the
| advanced Web development capabilities that
| are made available by emerging standards.
| The showcase has attracted criticism from
| standards advocates, however, because it
| pops up a message telling users that they
| will need to download Safari in order to
| view the demos.
| [...]
| Oddly enough, Apple has a whole separate
| version of the showcase on its developer
| website that exhibits none of these
| offensive characteristics. The more
| appropriately named "Safari Technology
| Demos" page has the same demos, but
| doesn't categorically block alternate
| browsers. I was able to test the demos in
| Chrome and found that most of them worked
| as expected. This alternate page is
| accessible by clicking the "Developers"
| link at the bottom of the HTML5 showcase.
| This alternate version of the showcase is
| much closer to how it should be done.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
