Company sues Apple for ‘incomplete implementation’ of HTML 5 in iOS’s Safari

Another day, another lawsuit. Developer and business service supplier Nexendi is suing Apple in French courts for “incomplete implementation of the HTML 5 specification in the iOS version of Safari,” according to AppleInsider.

Nexendi is demanding that Apple "support the latest Web and HTML5 standards on its iOS platform." Should the company prevail, and Apple cede to demands of better HTML5 support, it would allow web browsers with better HTML5 support than Apple's WebKit on the iOS App Store, notes AppleInsider.

HTML5 is the latest evolution of the standard that defines HTML. The term represents two different concepts: It is a new version of the language HTML, with new elements, attributes, and behaviors, and a larger set of technologies that allows more diverse and powerful websites and applications.
