Apple's HTML5 tech demos

What you see if you try to run Apple's tech demos in a browser other than Safari
Apple showcases seven tech demos to promote HTML5

Apple is continuing is full assault on Adobe's Flash technology. The company's latest efforts center around seven tech demos which showcase that HTML5 can perform many of the same tasks as Adobe Flash.

Apple prefaces the tech demos by stating:

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. These web standards are open, reliable, highly secure, and efficient. They allow web designers and developers to create advanced graphics, typography, animations, and transitions. Standards aren’t add-ons to the web. They are the web. And you can start using them today.

The tech demos include video and audio playback, photo sideshows (which are often done with Flash on news websites), transitional effects for pictures, a 360 degree view of an iPod touch, and a virtual reality tour of the flagship NYC Apple Store.

Interestingly, even though Apple is promoting an open web with HTML5 and declares that Adobe Flash doesn't always present a consistent or stable experience for users, Apple's own tech demos won't even work unless you download Safari and install it on your computer.

Safari comes pre-installed on every Mac, iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad -- hence the demos work on these devices -- but Apple has left other HTML5-capable browsers like Google Chrome out of the tech demo fun (see image on the right).





"If you can find a PS3 anywhere in North America that's been on shelves for more than five minutes, I'll give you 1,200 bucks for it." -- SCEA President Jack Tretton
