The State of HTML5 Audio - PhobosLab

The State of HTML5 Audio - PhobosLab: "The Audio support on mobile Browsers (iOS and Android) is laughable at best. It's completely unusable for even the simplest of tasks. You can jump through hoops and ask real nice, but it still sucks ass.

I've heard some arguments that it is crippled on purpose, because you don't want a website to start blaring music at you as soon as you open it. Fine, I understand that argument. But why not ask the user for permission to play audio and then do it right? It's already been done with Geo Location and Storage.
