With its Chrome browser, Google has changed the Web in some truly significant ways. One of the ways it has achieved success in this field is always pushing for new ways of doing things. Experimentation. Trial and error. Failures leading into successes.
As far as users go, this mindset can be seen most clearly with Chrome Experiments, which showcases the pioneering work of coders using programming languages associated with the Web. There are now 1000 Chrome Experiments to explore, so let’s sort the wheat from the chaff.
We want to know, What’s Your Favorite Google Chrome Experiment?
Thankfully, seeing as we have a colossal collection of 1000 Chrome Experiments to choose from, the 1,000th Chrome Experiment is a discovery tool designed to help us all find what we are looking for.
Chrome Experiment #1000 displays all of the previous 999 Chrome Experiments as a collection of bubbles. They can be viewed as the number 1000, placed on a grid, or viewed as a timeline. Crucially, they can also be sorted by tags using the icon in the top right-hand corner. You can also sort all 1000 Chrome Experiments by popularity on the homepage of the site.
So, what we’re asking you to do this week is take a look around the Chrome Experiments website, and try out the experiments that appeal to you personally. When you have done so, come back here and tell us about your favorites.
Games are bound to feature quite heavily, as they’re undoubtedly the most fun genre of Chrome Experiments. However, we also urge you to explore some of the other categories, such as 3D, Drawing, Audio, and WebGL.
The Chrome Experiments website has been online since 2009, so some of the technology now looks positively ancient. In Internet terms, six years is a veritable lifetime, which makes this a great time to take stock and look back over what’s changed in that short period of time.
Our ultimate goal is to build a list of the best Chrome Experiments everybody should try. But in order to achieve that, we need your help. Yes, we’re asking for a favor, and yes, it could be considered unpaid work, but we guarantee you’ll have fun in the process. Probably. No, definitely.
