Apple reveals iPad-Ready Websites

Despite the initial rounds of positive reviews for the iPad, there are concerns that the device won’t have support for flash. Some feel that universal support for HTML5 is still years away and that Apple should cater to a format that’s most compatible with the market today. Well Apple seems to be taking a firm stance on the matter as they’ve just revealed a list of websites that “supports the latest web standands – including HTML5, CSS 3 and Javascript“. Some of these sites include CNN, New York Times, Vimeo, Time, Sports Illustrated, Flickr, People Magazine, and Major League Baseball. The common denominator here appears to be support for watching video on the iPad via an HTML5 compatible player. Apple have even included a section for companies to “Submit their site to the growing list“, as well as providing detailed info to webmasters on how to ensure that their website is fully functional when viewed on an iPad.
