Chrome Experiments

1000 Chrome Experiments, and Counting

Yesterday, the Google Chrome team announced a significant milestone: 1000 Chrome Experiments, and counting.

In 2009, the Chrome team launched Chrome Experimentswith just 19 experiments, pushing HTML5 and JavaScript to the limits. Today, (ok yesterday) the site contains 1000 pieces of programming art.

The team, in true Google fashion, decided a celebration was in order:

To celebrate, we’ve created a special Experiment #1000 that visualizes every other experiment on the site. You can explore all 1,000 in a variety of ways, including a real-time code editor and a timeline with selectable tags. Click on the WebGL tag, for example, and you’ll see how that technology surged in popularity when it was added to Chrome in 2011.

Apart from reaching the milestone, the Chrome team also announced that they’ve re-done the Chrome Experiments website using Polymer. The site is now completely mobile friendly. According to the blog:

Along with Experiment #1000, we’ve redesigned using Polymer. It’s mobile-friendly, so no matter what kind of phone or tablet you have, or how you hold it, the site scales smoothly. If you’re on your phone, you can also filter the list to mobile-compatible experiments by selecting the Mobile tag.

So what are your favorite Chrome Experiments?
