Google has reason to celebrate: there are now more than 500 experiments on ChromeExperiments.com, site that carries the tagline “Not Your Mother’s JavaScript.”

People keeping track of these things will remember that Google launched the Chrome Experiments website back in March 2009. Google explained at the time that it aims to showcase Chrome’s strength at running JavaScript and it invited programmers and developers to come up with interesting experiments and submit them. To give everyone a taste of what can be achieved with JavaScript, Google presented 19 experiments on the ChromeExperiments.com website.

Time passed and the Chrome Experiments website became home for a myriad of JavaScript experiments that show some of the potential of a better web.

Five months after Chrome Experiments was launched, in August 2009, Google was glad to announce that the site is home to 50 impressive JavaScript experiments. A year later, in July 2010, the number of experiments went up to 100. It is now September 2012, three and a half years after the launch of the site, so how many experiments do you think there are on Chrome Experiments? There are now more than 500, according to an announcement made by Google earlier this month.

“The web is capable of amazing things and is becoming more capable all the time,” commented Aaron Koblin and Valdean Klump, Creative Lab. “To show some of the potential of a better web, we launched ChromeExperiments.com in March 2009 with 19 inspiring examples by the creative coding community of what’s possible when combining the latest web technologies with a little code and imagination. Some of those original experiments, like Google Gravity and Ball Pool, are still popular today. But we’re pleased to say that they’ve since been joined by hundreds of other contributions from around that world that have pushed the web even further.”

To mark this joyous occasion, and to thank all those who submitted their work, Google created Experiment 500. A bunch of particles make up the number 500. Place your mouse over a particle and info on an experiment will be presented in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. Click the particle and the experiment will launch.
