HTML5 according to Apple….

Well, you all know I’m a proponent of HTML5. I think the standards are now mature enough that we can (should/will) give up on proprietary plugins/kluges. To that end — and I think for a demo at WWDC’10 — apple has just released a page showcasing what HTML5 can do. Have a look at it and I think you’d agree that flashs’ days are numbered. I specially like the “smooth as butter” scaling on the video player. Also, as usual apple shows you step-by-step how to do all that stuff on your own. Nice :-). BTW, safari web browser is required to view these.

From Daring Fireball:

Update: If you go to http://developer.apple.com/safaridemos/ instead of http://www.apple.com/html5/, you can use Chrome to try the demos. Some work, but the 3D ones don’t. It still browser-sniffs to block other browsers. If you diddle with the current version of Firefox to masquerade its user agent string as Safari, two of the demos work: “Audio” and “360°”.
