There’s a good chance that you haven’t yet been to Google’s Chrome Experiments website, which is sort of like a lab for “showing-off” what cutting edge web technologies like HTML5, WebGL, SVG, and Canvas can do. All the hosted experiments on the mother site are a showcase for the capabilities of the Chrome browser. Now, Google has introduced Chrome Experiments for Mobile.
The mobile site has a small pool of ten experiments. The Chrome Experiments home site on the other hand has 475 experiments in all. Even with a small pool to begin with, Google is hoping to demonstrate the sophistication of the new standards that it is trying to push.
From interactive music to a drawing app that is about sketching hair on pictures, the boundaries of what you can do on a limited mobile screen and on a mobile browser are being extended with these fun experiments. You can type g.co/ce on your mobile or tablet device, or scan the QR code below.
As a recent Forbes article reports, the launch of the specialized mobile website could also have to do with the arrival of Google’s new Nexus 7 tablet. Mobile browsers are less powerful than their desktop variants, but the gap will reduce with tech developments and better video cards.
Do you think these experiments could spin-off into a powerful mobile experience? Try the ten experiments today and tell us.
