CSS 3D is something of an unsung hero, I feel. "Lathe Machine" by Einar Öberg. Multiplayer music making with Plink! Plink is a very original idea.
It’s an online, collaborative, multiplayer music making toy made by Dinahmoe.

Pulsating circles are generated by moving the mouse over a <canvas> element. Trigger Rally – online edition.

Blur Any Web Element Easily – Blur.js. Blur.js is a flexible jQuery plugin for implementing blur effect to any web element. It actually works by creating and placing psuedo-transparent blurred elements over the targeted ones and makes use of the StackBlur algorithm. The source of the blurred item (it can use the background of body or other HTML elements), radius of the effect and it is positioning can be defined with ease.

It’s a super simple speech synthesizer that “says” what you’re typing as you type, and then the whole line once you hit enter. While it’s pretty amazing to see this done in your browser and at such a small file size, you’re not going to be able to use this for your next round of prank calls: To go under 1K, I had to limit the synthesizer to two format filters using either a sawtooth or noise and discard plosive sounds.
