The Evolution of the Web
The folks over at Google Chrome have teamed up with Hyperakt and Vizzuality to put together the 2011 version of the Evolution of the Web visualization. It’s an interactive timeline that shows how the current web technologies have evolved over time. The color bands in the visualization represent the interaction between web technologies like HTML5, CSS3 and WebGL and browsers that we use daily. Screenshots from past versions of todays browsers are a nice addition (Mosaic 1.0 anyone?). As you would expect, it’s all built using purely open web technologies and the data is provided by Wikipedia and CanIUse.
