Chrome Experiments

Barely mentioning its corporate patron, this Google-sanctioned website doubles as an awkwardly latent promotion of the Chrome browser as well as a showcase of what’s possible using the latest browser technologies. Some of the experiments are genuinely eye-opening.

What the! A Google site with a black background. Does not compute.

I don’t know if using javascript experiments to promote Chrome is likely to have any impact outside the geek-o-sphere, but some of the results are certainly jaw dropping. And it’s nice to see a browser manufacturer take such a progressive attitude towards their product’s capabilities, rather than the tired old talk about security and backwards compatibility (I’m looking at you, Microsoft).
