20 Things I Learned About Browsers and the Web

 In Disfluent by Design, Headline, Online Design

The folks over at Google have written an online guide for everyday users who are curious about the basics of how web browsing works. Called “20 Things I Learned about Browsers and the Web,” this online guidebook is also built as a showcase of HTML5, Javascript and CSS3. With great illustrations by Christopher Niemann, it’s a fun and informative piece that everyone can enjoy.

Because it’s built in HTML5, there are a few nice surprises that the visitor can take advantage of. The app remembers where you were so that the next time you visit, your last page is shown. (No bookmark is necessary). Once visited, you can browse the app offline thanks to HTML5’s Application Cache. And CSS3 allows for web fonts, gradients and animations, all of which make for a much nicer user interface.

The only downside is that now that I’ve seen it online, I want a hard copy for my shelf. Check it out at 20thingsilearned.com ››
