The Experiments project kicked off with just 19 demos. In the intervening years, the community has taken Chrome Experiments to its heart and has contributed some amazing work. And, very recently, the thousandth Experiment has been released.
Experiment #1000 (opens in new tab)
Experiment #1000 is a visualisation of every experiment released. You can explore all 1,000 in a variety of ways, including a real-time code editor and a timeline with selectable tags. Click on the WebGL tag, for example, and you'll see how that technology surged in popularity when it was added to Chrome in 2011.
Along with launching Experiment #1000, the Chrome Experiment site has been redesigned using Polymer. The new site is mobile friendly so scales smoothly across different viewport sizes and orientations.
Here are some Chrome Experiment highlights...
