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

According to Google the Chrome Experiments site, which carries the tagline “Not Your Mother’s JavaScript”, is doing quite well. The site was launched back in March 2009 to serve a rather simple goal – showcase the fact that Google’s Chrome web browser can handle Java-intensive apps quite well. It now serves one other purpose - it also showcases Chrome's HTML5 implementation.

“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.

When the site was launched it featured only 19 experiments. But artists and programmers from all over the world got onboard, came up with interesting experiments and submitted them to Google. So in five months time, the number of experiments on Chrome Experiments increased to 50.

That was 5 months after Chrome Experiments was launched. The site has been up and running for more than a year now, so how has it been fairing? As Google joyfully announced, the number of experiments has doubled since the last announcement (the one that said there are 50 experiments available). Google announced that there are now 100 experiments available on Chrome Experiments.

"We’re pleased to announce that the site now points to 100 experiments -- each one made, hosted, and submitted by programmers from around the world. If you haven’t checked out Chrome Experiments recently, do take some time to explore the work of these talented artists/programmers in Google Chrome or any modern browser. Of course, if you’re a programmer yourself, we’d love to see your work. Thanks to everyone who has helped spread awareness of what browsers can do. We can’t wait to see what the future holds, and we’ll see you again at 200," announced on behalf of Google Creative Lab, Aaron Koblin and Valdean Klump.
