The Future of Web Browsing

The future of web browsing

The web will be history. Every site’s content will be liberated from the confines of space

An article posted on Sidebar , underline the mind-blowing power of HTML5.

Web developer / Mozilla evangelist David Walsh has grouped nine demos that use just native web technologies to show how much can be done in your web browser without the need for plugins like Flash and Silverlight.

These, in my opinion, are the three best Here are three of the best native web technologies:

1. Zen Photon Garden.

A real-time interactive raytracer art-toy for sculpting with light.

Watch the video to see how a uniform circle of light can be sculpted into a unique shape.

For more details about how the raytracer works, see the blog post:

Zen photon garden uses several great new HTML5 features. Currently Firefox nightly builds are the only browser to support every single one!

- Web Workers, for rendering on multiple CPU cores.
- Canvas, for drawing the results.
- Typed Arrays, for efficiently operating on large blocks of data.
- asm.js when available, for compiling a subset of JavaScript to fast native code.

Inother word,  Zen Photon Garden, lets you draw on a live canvas to the modify the direction of light. All of the calculations are done in real-time; if you're so-inclined you can create some really beautiful images with very little effort.

2. Typeface animation (motion graphic typeface)

 It's impressive! It uses math to create a highly complex animation. It's Helvetica as you've never seen it before: letters wriggle and shift, jostling for position, text is animated, and you can use your mouse to change the viewing angle. As it's native, the demo runs on pretty old hardware without issue, and the source code is there to be hacked and changed on the fly.

3. Webcam-based gesture recognition with reveal.js

Definitely the best!

A Chrome Experiment called Gestures + Reveal.JS uses WebRTC and JavaScript to tap into your webcam.

It allows you to control an interface using gestures while a digitized version of your webcam stream looks on in the background.

Sure, this kind of control scheme may have lost some of its novelty since Microsoft released its Kinect sensor, but it's an neat demo, and again, it's one that almost any computer built in the past five years can run without issue.

The author willy-vvu writes:

"MY THOUGHT PROCESS: You can get fabulous presentations and cool 3D transitions with Reveal.js... You can get user input through the webcam using Web RTC... Armed with the two and some spare time, I wrote some signal processing JS (took a while to get the algorithms just right) and overlay interface. I believe this will be the one aspect of future of computing."
