Given its consistent trashing of Flash in favour of the open HTML5, it’s no surprise that Apple has added a new page to its website showcasing just what HTML5 can achieve.

In Apple’s words:

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. Standards aren’t add-ons to the web. They are the web. And you can start using them today.

Some of the examples are pretty impressive, with print-like typography layouts, three-dimensional photo galleries and video views, and a range of image transitions.

Check out how good the web can look at the Apple website. And the best bit? They’ll all work on an iPad.
