Now, Google has pulled together nine of the experiments that are optimized for mobile browsers and launched a dedicated mobile site. One motivation for the timing of the launch is to point to the kinds of amazing things that you can do on Google’s new Nexus 7 tablet. Not all of the web standard features of desktop browsers are available on mobile yet, particularly WebGL, that powers the globe visualization at the top of the page. But given time and better video cards, everything you see on the desktop now, will be available on your smartphone or tablet soon.
To see some of the older (but still impressive) Experiments in action, check out this video from Google I/O 2009. What was edgy then is now widely supported by most browsers. And, of course, during that time, Google’s Chrome as advanced to become the world’s most popular browser, from only 5.5% at the time of I/O 2009 to 41.7% now.
To make sure your browser can render the Chrome Experiments properly, take this Acid Test and make sure your score 100.
