HTML5 – Showcase and Experiments (Apple and Google)

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010 | Business | 1 Comment

Apple released their HTML5 Showcase a month or so ago.  It was cool, but the showcase required Safari to view it (not sure if this is a technical limitation, or just marketing making the decision).

I just saw the Google equivalent, Chrome Experiments: Not your mother’s JavaScript … and it’s damn cool.  Most of these (if not all, I haven’t gone through them all yet) are NOT limited to Chrome.  If you can’t run it in your browser (and why NOT) – you can see videos of each of them.

Some of the featured experiments:

  • Sketchpad – We’ve seen this before, showing off the ability to create vector graphics in HTML5 (we’ve linked to this before)
  • Canopy – Impressive fractal zoomer implemented with HTML5
  • Browser Ball – Some interesting animation of an element between windows.
  • Wavy Scrollbars – physics simulation using browser scrollbars.
  • Pong – Pong implemented through browser windows (annoying sound warning)
  • Google Gravity – Physics applied to the Google homepage (demos very nicely physics as well as CSS rotations)
  • Harmony – Sketching app
  • Destructive Video – This is cool, blow apart a playing video (I’ve linked to this before) — notice how the video keeps playing
  • Ball Pool – Another physics demo … rotations, animations, large numbers of objects.
