The iPhone 4 announcement obviously trumped this at WWDC 2010, but Apple have also released Safari 5. If you read about what’s new you will see lots of HTML5 stuff, including WebSocket.
But as I wrote about last week, which version of HTML WebSocket? Is it the same as the latest version of Google Chrome? Google made a clear statement about the version and how it will not maintain compatibility until the specification is more stable, but I cannot find any info from Apple on this. Is it the same code base since they are both WebKit browsers?
So that’s the two smaller browsers (market share) with some support for WebSocket, when will IE and Firefox join the party?

From my testing it’s still using the older protocol (http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-hixie-thewebsocketprotocol-75).
Thanks for the comment, I haven’t got round to testing it myself yet.
