One More Link Regarding Apple’s ‘HTML5’ Demo Gallery

It just occurred to me what Apple should have called these demos: “Look at the Cool Shit You Can Make Without Flash”.

Anyway, I agree with most of what Scott Gilbertson writes here, but not this:

Naturally, everything works without issue in Chromium, because it uses the same WebKit rendering engine as Safari. Apple is being disingenuous by making its browser seem more compelling than others.

Chrome does render most of Apple’s examples (as you can see visiting this URL using it), but it doesn’t render all of them. Google’s branch of WebKit does not support all of the 3D transform features that Apple’s does.
