Site of the Month August 2012: Chrome Web Lab
For the second month running, a web project from the amazing and ever-surprising Google browser once again takes the prize for Awwwards' Site of the Month for August 2012. This time the project is Chrome Web Lab. Chrome has dazzled both old Google hands and newcomers alike since it was launched by the giant of Mountain View in September 2008, and little by little it has been gaining an ever greater share of users, creeping up on its rivals to become the world's most used browser.
The Site of the Month: Chrome Web Lab
- Chrome Web Lab is a set of experiments in Google Chrome designed with the aim of showing off the browser's potential and the new funcions Chrome offersthe online community. "The web is what you make of it", goes its motto. Chrome Web Lab proves this beyond question, with five interactive experiments that surprise and delight the user, and showcase the magic of the internet in all its glory.
