Apple posts a new HTML5 demo page -- for Safari only

Whether you're on Team Apple or Team Adobe in the whole Flash vs. HTML5 brouhaha, you really can't dispute just how nice some of the new HTML5 and CSS3 features are, and while Microsoft was quick to throw a demo page up to tout IE9's capabilities, Apple for some reason waited until yesterday to post one for Safari. ...And they locked it down with user-agent detection to allow only people using...

Apple releases "iPad ready" list of Flash-free websites

Do you want to know which Websites are going to look good on an iPad that's running the built-in Safari browser? Apple's got a list up on its Website, showing off some "iPad ready" sites. The common denominator is use of the latest Web standards, defined by Apple as HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript (you'll note the conspicuous lack of Flash, here). The list includes CNN, the New York Times, Vimeo, and...

Goodbye Google Gears, Hello HTML5

We already knew Google Gears was on its way out, but Google has now basically lowered the casket into the ground. Gears powered a bunch of web apps in its day, but now Google's stopping work on it and switching to supporting its features natively in Chrome using HTML5 and other emerging web standards. What does this mean for current Gears users? Well, support will be severely limited, but...

3D browser apps and games creep ever closer with the WebGL draft standard

The Khronos Group, which is in charge of the tried-and-tested OpenGL framework, has announced that its work with Mozilla to form a 3D Web standard has reached draft standard form. Ladies and gentlemen: WebGL is born! Draft standards rarely undergo many changes, and most of the important details and unique selling points are now set in stone. There are already nascent, developer versions of WebGL...

Internet Explorer 8 will support web standards by default

Back in January, Microsoft caused quite a stir when they announced that the default behavior of Internet Explorer 8 would be to render web pages the same way as they are rendered in IE 7. The problem with this? One of IE 8's most touted features is its web standards compliance and its passing of the Acid2 test. However, web developers and standards advocates were miffed at the idea that rendering...

Design Tip: Inspect CSS with style in your browser

Whilst there's plenty of tools around for helping with CSS styling, if you want a neat little browser bookmarklet that displays all the properties associated with the selected element and "box model for any element on any web page", then XRAY from WestCiv might be just the thing. XRAY shows you the sizes and other attributes of element you select, fades the rest of the page out and hovers a...

Microsoft's Chris Wilson on IE7's standards support

ZDNet's Richard MacManus has conducted an interview with Chris Wilson, the Group Program Manager for Internet Explorer at Microsoft to discuss the IE7 standards issues that have popped up lately. Wilson recently posted in his blog about claims concerning IE7's non-compliance, essentially saying that today IE is, indeed, behind on standards, but that there is so far no unbiased test for compliance...

Internet Explorer 7 sucks on standards

Windows experts and web developers are unhappy with Microsoft. Yes, again. Since Internet Explorer 7 was announced, Microsoft has promised that supporting current web standards was high on its list. It turns out, though, that by at least one report, IE7 will only support 54% of the CSS 2.1 standard, as compared to 52 in Firefox 1.5 and 96% in Opera 9. In addition to making a whole lot of web...
