forgot the damn link... http://developer.apple.com/safaridemos/

Yes, the demos work...but if you go to the Safari HTML5 "muscle flexing" page, it'll sniff your user agent and tell you they only work in Safari.Which they don't, you're right. Only the video demos gave me any guff in Google Chrome 6, but HTML5 video is still a mess anyway...

it should work, but it politely tells you:"You’ll need to download Safari to view this demo."

It's official - Apple needs a dictionary. "Standard" is not spelled "Proprietary" after all...

After doing a bit of work-around, I got through on Firefox. Curious, I fired up the video demo. What did I see? "Windows users can download Quicktime for support of this industry standard format".I am just plain not going to download Quicktime. If you want to find a web standard, you leave auxiliary programs out of it. I understand that the codec is probably bundled with Safari, but that falls under the same category for me. Firefox is my browser of choice; if you're not going to respect that, then you don't deserve to be leading the push for 'web standards'.
--that was Re: Apple's HTML5 page.

So ... Apple doesn't need flash to be awesome, you just need Safari. Less work on their end right?

That's funny...but I think Apple should be allowed to push Safari, Google & Microsoft (okay not Mozilla) do it. Google put links to Chrome of the homepage and Microsoft does their best to force IE onto just about anyone.I just think trying to force Safari onto the kind of user checking out an HTML5 demo is a bit wrong. Most people checking out an HTML5 demo are just going to get angry when they try and do that.
