Making the web awesome

Web Platform Roundup

As you can probably tell from the constant posts, we over at the Web Platform team like to talk about our work. After all, we think the contributions we’re making to the web are pretty cool. But we only know we’re making a difference when the community at large starts talking. The following is a compilation of what folks have been saying in the form of tutorials, demos, experiments, introductions, and general commentary.

While not focused completely on our feature work, we received a couple shout outs that we thought were pretty cool. Blend modes made Net Magazine’s top picks for May 2012 hot web standards, and received some international attention over at Heise Online and Total Photoshop Magazine. Regions and Exclusions were featured as part of Ars Technica’s March HTML5 roundup, and Alex Komoroske introduced Exclusions as part of Meet the Web Platform. Finally, Photonstorm mentioned CSS Shaders in their article on HTML5 game development.
