Google Chrome experiments are innovative projects that push the boundaries of web design. Only a handful of site crafters has paid attention to Chrome experiments and many users have no idea about. Initially, there were only websites build with the latest technologies. Currently, there are many others like Android, Voice, AI (Artificial Intelligence), AR (Augmented Reality), and WebVR (Web Virtual Reality) experiments.

These experiments give valuable hints about how web design will evolve. Chrome experiments are like testing cars in the world of car manufacturers. These sites are built with the latest technologies, usually to test the potential of the innovative tools and technologies. The next projects are carefully checked by me – I was impressed by these incredible works.

The good news is that everyone may contribute to the universe of Chrome experiments. Clearly, featuring in your portfolio such a piece of design will attract the eyes of the customers. Therefore, check these works, go to the Chrome experiments official page and study more projects. In this way, you make a clear idea about these.

Song Maker

Armin van Buuren or Tiesto doesn’t produce music by using Song Maker, but it’s an exciting project for composing music. It comes with many options, and the interface is quite intuitive. It takes two minutes to familiarize with Song Maker and start building new hits. It’s part of Chrome Music Lab, a collection of web apps to create music directly from your browser.

North Korea Missile Test Visualization


I am not interested in politics and war, but this site featuring the missile tests of North Korea is really a masterwork. It reminds me of Flash sites, but the site developers used HTML5, CSS3, Three.js, and D3.js. The design is the work of a genius, and the user experience is great. This site fully deserves being named as a project from the future.

Colorful Fluid


If you want to play with colors, lights, and movements check this Chrome experiment. It allows creating various glowing shapes with the help of the cursor or webcam. Colorful Fluid might be a source of relaxation – a 2-minute break when you are stuck during your work. Three.js is a Javascript library that allows creating such impressive dynamic effects.


Do you want to enjoy a 3,500 km journey through West America? You should check this Chrome experiment that is made up of 344,118 Google Street images. It looks great, and certainly the author is a patient developer.

Topography of Dante’s Inferno

Have you ever read Inferno – the book of Dante Alighieri? Unfortunately, I didn’t read it, but this web app makes me reconsider this situation. It depicts Inferno’s hierarchy in detail; the site impresses with the drawings’ quality. Additionally, you can consult a list of “cantos” and a list of characters.


WikiWhere is a combination of a great idea and good design. It’s a beautiful game that consists in guessing five cities from across the globe. WikiWhere provides a short description of a city, and the players should guess the location as accurate as possible. Pay attention, it’s an addictive game!


AutoDraw is a nice and powerful drawing app that works directly from your web browser. The interface is user-friendly, and it incorporates machine learning algorithms. As a result, AutoDraw provide suggestions for everything you draw. It’s a super exciting concept; it fully deserves your attention.

Naturally Bizarre

The name of this Chrome experiment is quite inspired. Naturally Bizarre is a play of light, color, and movements that don’t have any practical purpose. There are four versions, and all of them fascinates the viewers. Dots, spheres, lines, curves, and irregular shapes made up abstract designs; overall, it’s a relaxing experiment.

2,000,000 Stars from the Gaia Satellite

If you want to see the Universe directly from your browser, this awesome website might be the best solution. It displays the data from Gaia Satellite, and the Sun is in the center of this image. It shows how small we are and how much patience the creator of it has to complete such a complex project.


roTopo required a lot of work from its developers; they used WebGL to show its fantastic potential. WebGL is a JavaScript API that renders 2D and 3D items directly into a browser. This app is a 3D puzzle – you own a character that must be directed to reach a destination. It’s not a complicated story, but it’s relaxing, and you can waste a few minutes to release the stress.


Maratropa isn’t a Twitter analytics tool, but it’s an interesting application based on Twitter. It combined WebGL effects with Twitter accounts – Maratropa creates a 3D visualization of your account. It’s not a useful app for a marketer, but it impresses a plethora of viewers with its cool design.


This is one of these Chrome experiments with almost no practical purpose, but it reveals the potential of the latest technologies, especially WebGL. It’s a combination of music, lights, and movements that looks wonderful. However, it’s not a useless site – it shows that sooner or later, users will play complex video games directly from their browser.

3D Periodic table

If you don’t like chemistry, this Chrome experiment makes you reconsider your attitude. It’s a 3D representation of the Periodic table. This web app lets you select a specific class of metals or non-metals. Additionally, by selecting a particular element, it will display the structure of an atom of that element.

Visualizing Cyber Threats

This outstanding app takes the data provided by a firewall and creates a sphere showing various pieces of information. It shows a timeline to display the actions chronologically. Visualizing Cyber Threats app looks like a tool from sci-fi movies. Clearly, it’s one of the most attractive forms of visualization.


If you are under pressure, World app might relax you. It gives you unlimited powers – for instance, to destroy our planet! It starts by displaying Earth from outer space and with just a single click you may destroy a part of the planet. The positive aspect is that after a period of inactivity, Earth comes to the initial shape.


Are you bored or your clients are annoying? It’s not professional advice, but you can upload a picture of them on WIBLR and have fun with it. This Chrome experiment skews the images in a quite funny way. Much more, the creator gives access to everyone willing to see the source code of the app.

Sound City

This app displays how the buildings of a city react to music. Sound City doesn’t have a practical purpose, but it proves once again that the latest technologies give unlimited powers to designers.


Alice is an artificial intelligence project that impressed me. The user is required to draw a face and Alice recognizes the emotions and the state of that face. Lots of people trained Alice to recognize the feelings better, so help her to became even better.

Drag and Glitch

Drag and Glitch is a Chrome experiment that reminds me of Adobe Photoshop. Practically, it lets you perform a plethora of effects over a photo. Some of these effects are cool – I am not sure if you can use this app for a client project, but clearly, it shows the impressive design skills of the creator.
