1,000 Chrome Experiments: A Celebration Of Creative Coding

Posted on Wednesday, March 4th, 2015 by

1000chromeexperiments5Google’s 1,000 Chrome Experiments celebrates six years of creative coding from around the world.

Revisit Chrome’s Best Web Design Experiments

1000chromeexperiments2Google launched Chrome Experiments in 2009 to demonstrate Chrome’s capabilities while encouraging coders to push the limits of what can be done in a browser window. Tons of creative coders hosted projects on the site, using HTML5 and JavaScript to create unique, interactive user experiences. Chrome Experiments recently reached a milestone achievement: 1,000 experiments. In celebration of that accomplishment, Chrome Experiment #1,000 is a visual representation of all the experiments that preceded it. Each of these experiments is available to re-experience on the Chrome 1,000 page, arranged in bubbles that together form the number “1,000.” These bubbles can be rearranged in several different ways in order to be more easily explored, making different experiments more easily discoverable.


A Fitting Tribute to An Ambitious Project

1000chromeexperiments3My personal favorite way of arranging the 1,000 Chrome Experiments is by timeline. The bubbles rearrange themselves based on the date which they were published, starting in 2009 and leading up to 2015. Clicking on any of the bubbles reveals the actual experiments, which range from games to visual design displays and other ambitious coding experiments. There’s also the option of filtering the experiments by type, such as “Microphone Input” or “Realtime Coding.” The site even lets you get involved with the action, allowing you to manipulate the homepage by messing with its code. If you’ve ever been a fan of any Chrome Experiments, now is the time to go back and revisit the best the project has to offer.
