We have published a few posts about experimental CSS3 and HTML5 to show the power of them.And you know,new projects are being released so often and personally we like to check out these new experiments.
If you are a web designer who is trying to understand the true potential of these two markup languages, then these awesome and creative experimental web designs from Mozilla Demo Studio will be a great source of inspiration.
The Mozilla Demo Studio, it's a place where developers can develop, share, demonstrate, and learn all about Web technologies and:
- Inspect the source code for those demos so you can see how they work.
- Read documentation to learn about the open standards and technologies that power the Web.
These Mozilla Demo Studio examples will encourage the developers to come up with some awesome web designs by utilizing their skills.
So study these examples well and enjoy!

It’s mainly inspired by shadow artist Kumi Yamashita (kumiyamashita.com).
