From the Author: [ EDITOR'S NOTE -- Click "Want to try something new? " in the bottom left corner to turn on the experiment ] At this point it's almost hard to remember, but when Google Maps was first released in 2005, it was one of the first web applications to demonstrate what was possible with AJAX and the web platform.
This project was a challenge technically but we’d like to think that it helped to fire the imaginations of web developers around the world. Today, the Maps team is launching a beta of a brand new experience we call MapsGL. MapsGL is one of the first large scale applications to be built on top of WebGL. Technically, MapsGL brings significant changes to how map and image tiles are rendered on the client and server.
All Khronos members are able to contribute to the development of Khronos API specifications, are empowered to vote at various stages before public deployment, and are able to accelerate the delivery of their cutting-edge 3D platforms and applications through early access to specification drafts and conformance tests. OpenGL - The Industry Standard for High Performance Graphics OpenGL® is the most widely adopted 2D and 3D graphics API in the industry, bringing thousands of applications to a wide variety of computer platforms. OpenCL - The open standard for parallel programming of heterogeneous systems OpenGL ES - The Standard for Embedded 3D Graphics EGL - Native Platform Interface.

From the Author: Presented to you by FlamingLunchbox is a puzzle, originally for Android phones, using a simple idea. Connect the path and win the game. Each Curvy puzzle consists of a grid of hexagonal tiles. On each tile appears a single or double set of lines, and each set of lines has its own color. Curvy allows a variety of different puzzle sizes, providing puzzles that can be quickly solved as well as more complex versions depending on the size you choose. Technology: Curvy in HTML5. Curvy is a HTML5 puzzle game using the canvas element.
These experiments toe the delicate line between technology and art, and we've included videos of a few of them below. The Chrome Experiments site was created about a year and a half ago. Experiments were sent in by web designers all over the world, featuring, according to the site, "the latest open standards, including HTML5, Canvas, SVG and more. Their work is making the web faster, more fun, and more open — the same spirit in which we built Google Chrome. " Google's support of such browser-related open standards — including HTML5 — has impacted some of the company's largest applications, including Reader, Voice, Gears and web video in general.
Likewise, we saw a few neat web-based drawing tools like this one: Ten ‘Chrome Experiments’ in WebGL that you MUST see. What are Chrome Experiments? Simply put, they are interesting bits of coding that use some of the latest open technologies (e.g. HTML5, Canvas, SVG, and especially WebGL) in a browser setting (not necessarily Chrome). The Google Chrome connection comes from the fact that Google have set up a website to showcase these coding ‘experiments’. This post will feature 10 Chrome Experiments that we loved here at Freewaregenius.
A big step forward has been the widespread adoption and support of HTML5, which is becoming standard in all modern browsers. New functionality like the video and canvas tags have made for some inspiring work. It’s hard to pick our favorites, but a few innovative submissions include Destructive Video, SketchPad, and Harmony. 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. 500 Chrome Experiments and counting...
