Google is experimenting with some of the prettier, eye-candy elements of HTML5 for its Chrome Web browser. Chrome Experiments is a showcase for creative Web experiments, most of which are built with the HTML5, Canvas, SVG and WebGL. “The Wilderness Downtown” is an interactive interpretation of Arcade Fire’s song “We Used To Wait” and was built with HTML5 video, audio and canvas. “3 Dreams of Black” is an interactive film by Chris Milk and Google that showcases WebGL, a context of the HTML5 canvas element that enables hardware-accelerated 3D graphics in the Web browser without a plug-in. You can’t do this stuff with Flash, folks. Still, IDC analyst Al Hilwa told eWEEK that as committed to HTML5 as Google is going forward, it will soften the blow for Flash developers.
