Once again, shows Apple takes some time to get some features others have had, but they do it with the best efficiency than their competitors. People need to see that efficiency is the future.
I don't know about you, but if I'm going to pay for a computer, phone, tablet, I'm going to want it to work well, and to the best of it's ability. I don't want something that will get a virus, lag, glitch, or even have to worry about getting an anti-virus software.
So finally I say congratulations to Apple in choosing HTML5 to run on their iDevices and other products, I'm sure it was the best decision for that type of material to run on their products.
I can't tell if this is a real 'Thank you' or sarcasm but to clarify Apple has removed the need to download the plenty of plugins that could be required to run types of media on the web, to one single web browser that can does not need all of the plugins you would without HTML5. Just Apple making ways of viewing things more efficient.
If HTML5 continues to be used, from what I saw in the demo's we should see and hear more about it's involvement, because I really doubt someone could really tell much difference.
Say you buy a V6 car, and expect it to run like a V8, with the power and ability it has. You can't force the V6 car to act as a V8. So you find ways to modify the V6 to run equal or better level with alternative ways, instead of wastefully and recklessly flooring the gas pedal.

I really do not want everyone to start going to HTML5.
Comapred to Flash, it sucks. We all know it does, so we should stop sugar coating it. If apple doesn't calm down, then sooner or later the iPhone is going to loose a lot of sales.
We would probably all have iphones, iPads and iMacs and whatever else had an i in it. Macs would also be cheaper then PC's probably dont ya know
Anyways Apple has so many chances to become a juggernaut and beat out Google and Microsoft, but it's like Steve Jobs doesn't pay attention.
There is definitely no we in "I"phone thats for sure.

I think that they ask for you to install Safari because they know for a fact it works 100% with Safari. Other browsers may not have full support for some of the things they are showcasing yet which will lead people to think that HTML5 is crap and doesn't work. So they are just covering the issue of knowing that the showcasing of what HTML5 "can" do will work properly.

That is the thing though HTML5 is not a standard yet. It still has not made it to a final agreement to become a full on standard. It is close but there are a couple tiny things that needs to be figured out. I beleive one of the things is that Microsoft doesn't agree on the video codec and a few others don't either. So that is one of the few things left from becoming a standard.

Not a standard yet? So Apple is pushing and full-on supporting a technology that isn't complete?
Reminds me of a tweet from a certain popular iPhone developer the other day...

True, but I think Google is behind that wheel too. Microsoft is sort of being pulled by them and partially agrees on some things with them both.

Of course Steve wants to tout it as the thing of the future, apple owns the rights to the video format for it and are eager to get their window of royalty free usage over with so they can replace adobe across the web.

I'm really tired of Steve Jobs....seriously tired of him
