THE WEB EXPANDS AT AN INCREDIBLE SPEED, AND BROWSERS OBVIOUSLY HAVE TO KEEP UP WITH IT, ADOPTING NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE VIEWING AND INTERACTION OF CONTENT.
GOOGLE CHROME SINCE 2008 IS COMMITTED TO ALWAYS BE AT THE FOREFRONT, AND FOR ITS BIRTHDAY THE COMPANY HAS DECIDED TO CREATE A SPECIAL PAGE.
To celebrate Chrome’s third anniversary, Google has prepared an “interactive infographic”, made in HTML5, which in one screen summarises the history of browsers and various web standards.
On this page, which I invite you to use using an updated browser, capable of correctly managing the new HTML5 specifications, the Google team writes: “what the average user does not perceive is the close relationship between web technologies and browsers. It makes possible everything you see today on the most modern web pages”.
The web of our time is the result of the efforts made by an open community, as Google reminds us, which is working to uniquely define (so that there is universal acceptance) technologies such as HTML5, CSS3 and WebGL.
The coloured bands that Google has inserted in the infographic reflect the interaction between web technologies and browsers as they are designed by each manufacturer.
