Mozilla Presents: The Web O' Wonder

I’m excited to announce that we are launching the first phase of the Web O’ Wonder project today!



This is the first time, outside of the demos featured on Hacks, that Mozilla has created a site dedicated to showing off the latest in Web technologies. We will be releasing a few demos each week for the next several weeks, so be on the look out for new demos!  

Before you go in to explore (which I strongly encourage you do) you should know that Web O’ Wonder isn’t your typical demos site.

The demos are meant to push the boundaries of the Web you think you know.  The demos demonstrate technologies that most people have never seen before--but more importantly, you will see the browser do these amazing things without plugins!

Another important difference with this site is that Web O’Wonder is ‘demoing’ the Web, not just a specific browser. From the beginning, we wanted to make sure that all modern browsers would be able to view the demos as they were meant to be seen. For now, that means that Firefox 4 Beta+ and Chrome 9+ can see all the demos fully. Other browsers will be able to see the demos as their capabilities catch up.

I also want to call out that our WebGL demos (technology used to render 3D graphics) will only work on the most modern of hardware. If you run into difficulties, I recommend updating your graphics drivers. If that doesn’t help, we have created “screen-casts” of each demo. Click on “Watch the Video” to see the screen-cast.  


Some demos even include a “behind the scenes” with the creators of specific demos. For phase 1, we have profiled the “Remixing Reality” demo, so make sure to check it out!

You may also notice that the source-code for all the demos is hosted on GitHub when browsing the back of each demo card. We encourage the adventurous to go take a look, fork the code, and improve it. You can also submit your own demos through our “Submit a Demo” link.

To read a little bit more about this project, make sure to check out Paul Rouget’s blog post or the Mozilla blog.

Lastly, Web O’Wonder has been a labor of love for a lot of people for over several months. I want to thank the Mozilla community (you know who you are) for all the long hours and dedication and for all your help making this project a reality.
