Apple HTML5 Showcase Reveals Capabilities

Apple launched a HTML5 showcase, showing the capabilities of HTML5 without the need to install any additional plugins. Apple is one of the biggest supporters of HTML5, and thinks this new web standard is the future of the web.

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.

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.

Soon other modern browsers will take advantage of these same web standards — and the amazing things they enable web designers to do.

There are some obvious limitations in the HTML5 version, like no sound and limited graphical effects. Still, it’s an interesting adoption of some HTML5 standards that Apple has been pushing so hard.

Notably, the demos require the use of Safari. Firefox and Chrome users will be directed to download Safari.
