Apple, Steve Jobs specifically, have taken aim at Adobe Flash. It is old news that Flash was blocked from Apple iPhone and iPod Touch and Apple iPad more recently.
And in a recent interview at D8 Conference, Steve Jobs said that they place their bets on the technology that’s in their spring season of their growth (HTML5) and Flash is definitely not.
Following up with that, Apple just unveiled a showcase to show what HTML5 can do with this new technology.
Apple’s HTML5 showcase highlights 8 different sections and demos
- Video Effects
- Web Typography
- Web Gallery
- Photo Transitions
- Pixel Manipulation
This is a pretty impressive demo showcase showing what you can do with just browser technology without any special plugin like Flash or Silverlight.
I was really impressed with the demos. If you have wondered what’s with all the hoopla about HTML5, Apple has put together some fine examples for this new web standard. Go, check it out.
