20 Things I Learned About Browsers and the Web

The Google Chrome Team have put together a beautifully illustrated online book entitled “20 Things I Learned About Browsers and the Web” – that in itself is quite an achievement, as it looks stunning, but from my perspective, and us at LogicSpot, what I see here is a great example of where we’re going with the web – move over difficult to learn Adobe Flash which is poor to render on browsers – iPhones and iPads refuse to load Flash content, and browsers such as Firefox, Internet Explorer and others run decidely slower and shaky when there’s some heavy duty Flash on a webpage …. and we welcome the future of the web – HTML5, CSS3 and some really sweet Javascript to produce a very immersive, interactive and dynamic web browsing experience.

The website also uses the History API to provide a clutter-free URL structure that can be indexed by search engines. The HTML5 canvas element is used to enhance the experience with transitions between the hard cover and soft pages of the book. The page flips, including all shadows and highlights, are generated procedurally through JavaScript and drawn on canvas.

How cool?  If you have other great examples of HTML5 and CSS3 sites and would like to share, please add in the comments – I’d love to see!  🙂

And let me know what you think to this example – I think it’s pretty hot!  Our goal is to start turning work out like this before mid-next year.
