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.

Apple’s iPad / iPhone HTML5 Bet: HTML5 Drawing App Proves Capabilities

Sunday, February 7th, 2010 | Business | 3 Comments

Recently I’ve been posting on HTML5 versus Flash.  Many people who are not familiar with HTML5 may not know exactly the amount of power that has been provided with the new spec.  HTML 4 was nice, and a big upgrade, but I believe HTML 5 will be an even larger upgrade over HTML4.

The reason we are talking about HTML5, is Apple seems to be placing their bets on it.  Apple continues to refuse to have Flash running on their controlled devices (iPhone, iPad, etc) and seems to be pushing for HTML5 to take over.

We are slowly having to rethink the capabilities of the “HTML” platform that we have grown to know over the past 15 years. › Continue reading
