Or by claiming that this is a HTML5 showcase despite almost using no HTML5 elements (case in point: 360 rotation done in HTML4).
Or excluding browsers from tests which they could run without problems (e.g. Chrome does fine with almost all tests). If they used browser sniffing to exclude browsers from specific (!) tests which really did support certain feature this at least be understandable.
It was marketing stunt, no more or less, and a bad one at that.
Who said anything about interoperability? You're being conflicting with your own post when you mention code that specifically works with WebKit despite most of it being standardized in modern browsers and then stating inoperability was an implied goal that they failed to achieve when they are clearly pimping Safari *not Chrome, not Firefox, not IE, not Opera.
Then you make a weird comment about it using almost no HTML5, when they clearly do. I think you meant to point out that much of the tests revolve around CSS3 elements, which they clearly address on the site. In the title they state "HTML5 and web standards" which makes sense as most people have no idea what CSS is but are somewhat familiar with the concept of HTML.
As a marketing stunt it remains to be seen how effective it will be. If we see 3D Transforms hit the nightlies of other browsers within a couple months I'd call it a raging success. If we see Safari's marketshare increase more than it has in previous months I'd call it a raging success.
You seem to have a deep hatred for these demos but answer us this: If Apple's goal is prevent people jumping from Safari to Chrome or Firefox, how exactly do they do that by showcasing how Chrome and Firefox are just as good, if not better? Exactly!
