Apple launches HTML5 advocacy site

Did you think Apple was going to sit around and do nothing while Adobe runs its We <3 Flash ad campaign? Then clearly you don’t know Apple. A few moments ago the company launched a new website that touts the benefits of hopping aboard the HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript express as it barrels towards the front lines of the war between Apple and Adobe.

MIX10 is going strong and this year, the Microsoft conference has been filled with big announcements. Yesterday, we learned about Windows Phone 7 Series development and today, we get a glimpse of what is coming in Internet Explorer 9. The latest web browser from Microsoft stays competitive by supporting several HTML 5 specifications including CSS3, Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), XHTML parsing, and both embedded H.264/MPEG4 video and MP3/AAC audio. Microsoft’s latest web browser also includes a new and improved JavaScript engine that combined with its GPU-accelerated graphics promises to deliver a rich browsing experience. You can test drive the latest browser via an online demo over at Microsoft’s new IE9 website or, if you enjoy living life on the edge of a system collapse, you can download and install the Internet Explorer 9 platform preview.
