As reported on Almost Done, Apple apparently has its own iPad-specific web framework, which Jim Hoskins has dubbed AdLib. If you don’t own an iPad, you can still have a look at it by spoofing the user-agent courtesy of LifeHacker.
Mozilla/5.0(iPad; U; CPU iPhone OS 3_2 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/531.21.10 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0.4 Mobile/7B314 Safari/531.21.10
I tried Firefox and Chrome using their respective user-agent switcher plugins, but didn’t get very far. So go into Safari and select Develop->User Agent->Other… Paste in the above string, click OK, and make sure it’s active. Next navigate to iPad User Guide and check it out. Here’s hoping Apple will be releasing it independently or as a part of the SDK. Here’s also hoping it’s iPhone-compatible.
