Apple’s new HTML5 page on its site is a showcase for what you can do with the technology. There are seven impressive examples of things you can do using only HTML5: Video, Typography, Gallery, Transitions, Audio, 360, and VR. “Standards aren’t add-ons to the web. They are the web,” Apple writes.
But what’s a bit odd is that you can only view the examples using Apple’s Safari web browser. Other HTML5-compliant browsers — like Google Chrome — are blocked. If you try to load the examples, Apple pops up a message that you need to download Safari to view the demo. “This demo was designed with the latest web standards supported by Safari,” the message reads.
All of these demos point to a “Safari Demos” page on the Apple Developer site — a page which can’t be found yet. It’s likely Apple is going to say more about this at its WWDC event starting on Monday.
The Safari Demos link is now working, and you can find a few other HTML5 demos there. And interestingly enough, you can use the demos there without Safari.
