What’s the big deal with HTML5?

More and more these days, I am convincing clients to opt-out of developing Flash websites, and instead try out the new HTML5 capabilities. Apple, one of the biggest supporters of HTML5, also thinks this new standard is the future. To make the point that Flash is no longer necessary, Apple put together a simple and elegant HTML5 showcase displaying what an HTML5-capable browser can do without the need of additional plugins.

(To try out any of the demos you’ll need to download the latest version of Safari)

Flash, you’ve been served.

PS: Did we mention you can do link prefetching.

    Great. A page promoting HTML5 that does browser detection to prevent it from working in any browser than Safari. Way to go there, Apple. It won’t even allow Chrome, which uses Webkit!

    Very Good Point. You’re right, seems pretty awful.
