Apple Store faced increasing criticism before for not being more open, Apple recently announced that there is a portion of its devices that is totally open:the Web. If developers do not like some of the restrictions of Apple store, they can build their new Web Apps. But, the critics think that this is the best interest of Apple so that people make native apps for their devices, not web apps that can be used anywhere.
Apple’s HTML 5 page on its site establishes the fact what you can do with the technology. There are seven unique things you can do using only HTML5: Video, Typography, Gallery, Transitions, Audio, 360, and VR. “Standards are not add-on to the web,” says Apple. But, the odd is that you can only view those things using Apple’s Safari Browser. You can not use other HTML5 compliant browser like Google Chrome. If you try to load the application in different browser, you will get error message “The demo was designed with the latest web standards supported by Safari”.
