In case you’ve been living in a cave inside another cave for the past few years, you’ve probably tried Google Chrome and found out how great it is. However, with its abounding simplicity, its hard to imagine it as being a particularly powerful browser. That’s where your wrong. Chrome Experiments is a collection of developers’ chrome based projects. The best way to describe them is to experience them. Most of these will run in Firefox or Opera, but they run much better in Chrome.

One of my personal favorites is SketchPad, an entirely java-scripted graphics program. Its a very unique little app that uses a very cool “light” paint. The most impressive thing, though, is that it is entirely javascript; Not a flash plugin or even Java plugin, it runs straight from the browser.

Another great one displaying Chrome’s special abilities is Browser Ball. This is a very simple one; nothing more than a bouncing ball inside a window. However, what happens if you make a new, overlapping window?…

Finally, a great showcase of Chrome’s power is Depth of Field. This is another simple one, just a group of metallic balls moving around in 3D. However, the catch is that this is also done without plugins or video of any type. The 3D plane is rendered in the browser itself!

There are tons of other great experiments on the site, too. Have fun! :lol:
