10 Awesome Google Chrome JavaScript Experiments

- - 1 comment
Several months ago, Google launched Chrome Experiments to feature some of the most innovative uses of JavaScript. Designers and programmers from all over the world are encouraged to submit their own experiments using the latest open standards that include HTML5, Canvas, SVG, and more. At the moment, more than fifty impressive JavaScript experiments have been submitted. The apps are apparently intended to highlight the speed and power of Chrome since they run faster with it than with any other browsers.

Here are some of my favorite Google Chrome JavaScript Experiments:
(Note: I have also tested these apps on Firefox version 3.5.2 and they all run well.)

Amiga Workbench Emulator by Christophe Résigné

Author's Note:

It's a full javascript (~3000 lines of code) remake of the classic Amiga's operating system "Workbench 1.3".

You can change resolution, color, font, wallpaper, move icons, open/resize windows, launch several little visuals effects.

Also the "CLI" (command manager) is working, you can access all the different command by typing "command" at the prompt.

World of Solitaire by Robert Schultz

Author's Note:

My experiment was to try and create a complete, beautiful and fun to play collection of Solitaire games with JavaScript.

World of Solitaire has over 40 Solitaire games in beautiful full screen glory. It has all the features you'd expect from a top of the line Solitaire program. Statistics, leaderboards, undo, multiple decks, customizable backgrounds, animation and more.

Chain Reaction by Yvo Schaap

Author's Note:

This game keeps you busy for hours to increase your score. 12 levels with each a minimum number of balls that need to be exploded, from a single click. Follow the balls, and decide when to explode!

Kaleidscope by REZ

Author's Note:

A kind of kaleidscope made only of filled circles with opacity. All parameters are random, so the scheme change everytime.

Ball Pool by Mr.doob

Author's Note:

Start by shaking the browser, then create new balls (click on empty space), move some others (drag) and reset the screen (double click).

BallDroppings by Josh Nimoy

Author's Note:'s a musical playtoy that looks like abstract pong. My hope is that i will be able to port enough of it to Javascript, and then use a bit of Flash to manage the sound. The result will be a limited version of BallDroppings that works in the browser. I might also provide instructions on how to begin interacting.

Google Gravity by Hi-ReS!

Author's Note:

"Everything that goes up must come down. But there comes a time when not everything that's down can come up."

George Burns couldn't probably imagine that his quote would eventually also be applied Google's main page.

Play with the elements and try searching whenever you get tired of it.

JS Fireworks by Kenneth Kufluk

Author's Note:

Write a message, then launch fireworks over London to show your message in the sky.

A shortened link to your fireworks message is provided, to post to Twitter, Facebook or other.

Requires latin-based characters to work.

Twitch by REAS

Author's Note:

TWITCH is a series of minimal games within small Chrome windows. How fast can you solve them all? Each game only responds to clicking; mouse position and keyboard are ignored.

Can you stay on the perilous belt? Can you accurately aim the booming cannon? Can you navigate through the electric pyramids? Can you solve the eerie labyrinth?

by ANDO Yasushi

Author's Note:

When you draw something on a canvas, it starts moving under the Newtonian law.
