At Google I/O this year, I teamed up with Alex Danilo from the Google Chrome team to give a talk on the future of CSS visualizations and how we envision using them in the next generation of digital reading experiences. You can see the complete video recording here:
In the talk, we cover a number of subjects including an overview of the web technologies used to develop the “Forest Giant” National Geographic article for the web browser, as well as our mobile installed application experience. On the technical side, Alex covers the workings of CSS Filters, CSS Custom Filters, WebGL, and the upcoming filter effects on video elements. The slides for the presentation can be found here.
