So, in an utterly humiliating turn of events, I was hacked — again — this time during SxSW. I had to take the server down for some routine pruning. I think we’re now back to our usual programming.
The browser wars panel is designed to be a discussion, so we didn’t use any kind of presentation media. So here’s a list of demos and resources so that you can learn more about stuff we talk about. Pictures speak volumes about what gets us excited about the web, anyway.
- The Web O’ Wonder Website works in browsers that support the latest web standards.
- The Beauty of the Web site showcases a bunch of different things with a bit of an IE9 slant.
- HTML5 Rocks showcases a lot of great demos, which work best in Firefox 4 and the latest Chrome (but the site uses feature detection, so much of it will work in IE9 and Safari.).
- FourSquare Playground has a strong IE9 bias, but showcases HTML5.
- IE Test Drive. Need I say more about bias? Showcases HTML5, with the promise of some demos that may work cross-browser.
- Here’s a presentation I gave, which may actually have a Firefox bias, given that I showcased technologies that were “Moz” prefixed (e.g. MozOrientation). Still, shows off some great demos in a variety of arena (Geolocation, etc.).
To get maximum mileage out of these, you’ll want a fast PC with the latest Chrome or Firefox.
- The CopperLicht Stuff from Ambiera blows my mind every time.
- Flight of the Navigator is a really compelling mix of different elements.
- Remixing Reality is really compelling demo of the use of models.
- The WebGL Demo Repository at Khronos contains demos that are classic GL ones (that 3D programmers are all well familiar with).
- Can I Use provides incredibly useful feature matrices to determine which browser supports what in the HTML5 and CSS arena.
- Quirksmode is the go-to place for compatibility tables.
- Hacks is Mozilla’s showcase for articles, demos, and API updates.
- HTML5 Rocks features great stuff about HTML5, and includes code snippets and documentation for developers.
- HTML5 Now is Tantek Celik’s book on the subject.
- HTML5 for Web Designers is Jeremy Keith’s book on the subject.
- Bruce Lawson and Remy Sharp’s HTML5 Lands
- Learning WebGL and the WebGL Cookbook are great sites to learn WebGL
