Chrome Experiments: Nothing for Your Mother, Plenty of Offerings for You

Back in March, Google launched an interesting webpage where it showcased a bunch of JavaScript experiments. The site I’m talking about is Chrome Experiments (with the tagline “Not Your Mother’s JavaScript) which was launched with a simple purpose in mind – to tout the fact that the Chrome browser is properly good at handling Java-intensive apps.

“We think JavaScript is awesome. We also think browsers are awesome. Indeed, when we talk about them, we say they are the cat's meow – which is an American expression meaning AWESOME. In light of these deeply held beliefs, we created [Chrome Experiments] to showcase cool experiments for both JavaScript and web browsers. These experiments were created by designers and programmers from around the world. Their work is making the web faster, more fun, and more open – the same spirit in which we built Google Chrome,” explained Google at the time.

The Chrome Experiments site has been out there for about 5 months now, so how has it been fairing up? Quite well actually. According to Aaron Koblin, Google Creative Lab, the Mountain View-based search engine giant was hoping that artists and programmers from all over the world would get on board, come up with an interesting experiment and submit it to Google. This is exactly what happened: the Chrome Experiments site started out with just 19 experiments, but thanks to the community this number has now increased to 50.

“We're excited to announce that Chrome Experiments now points to fifty very impressive JavaScript experiments. We'd like to send a huge thank you to the community for submitting such great work over the last five months. And we're thrilled to see many new submissions by developers from around the world, from Lithuania to Brazil to Australia. As the new generation of JavaScript engines make the web faster, we hope that you're enjoying the creative possibilities as much as we are,” commented Aaron Koblin.
