This is the place to see the latest demos of new web developments. As these are all cutting-edge uses of the latest tech, you'll get the most out of this with a fast PC, a big screen and the latest web browser. A netbook simply isn't going to cut it, though there are videos of each demo for the hardware-compromised.
Since these demos are going to vary, I can't predict exactly what you can expect other than that it's going to be some of the best in interactivity, animation and movie work along with special effects that once required third-party applications but can now be done entirely by and in your web browser.
Behind the scenes, the new kids on the block browser-wise are HTML5 and CSS3, even though the latter has been there for a couple of years, waiting for HTML and browser technology to catch up. HTML is the coding language used to create the structure and define the content of web pages, whilst CSS is a language largely focused on defining how those pages will look. Well, more or less. It's a tad more complicated than that, but you don't need to know even that much to appreciate this site.
Naturally, these demos are going to look great in Firefox 4, since Mozilla develops that browser, and I can't guarantee that everything will work in your version of Internet Explorer, which always trails behind. And because of the nature of the project, I can't predict exactly what will be there when you visit. What you can be sure of is that everything will run in the latest version of Firefox and with a modern desktop computer or well-specified laptop.
There are likely to be three main audiences for this. Web developers who know what's going on behind the scenes will get the most from it, since they'll appreciate the absence of third-party applications that used to be needed for this stuff. The average viewing audience, aside from being impressed by the overall coolness, should notice that the outstanding effects work a lot faster and smoother than they used to, if they were even possible before, and newcomers to the web might even be inspired to say "I want to do that" and take their first steps into web coding and design.
