I always love to upto date myself with Google things. So, recently Google Chorme introducing some awesome books. In this year, they introduced 20 Things I Learned About Browsers and the Web. I already read and learned around 15 things new. Later share but a detailed post, explained clearly given below,

The Google Chrome team has recently collaborated with designer and illustrator Christoph Niemann to create a guide to 20 of the things that make the internet as great as it is today. This guide was inspred by Tim Berners-Lee who is the ‘inventor’ of the internet as we know it. Google explains more on their Blog:

“20 Things” is written by the Chrome team, and continues our tradition of finding new ways to help explain complex but fascinating ideas about technology. Many of the examples used to illustrate the features of the browser refer back to Chrome.

Here are some of the fun tutorials within the guide:

  • But how do browsers and the web actually work?
  • What is HTML5—or HTML, for that matter?
  • What do terms like “cookies” or “cloud computing” even mean?
  • More practically, how can we keep ourselves safe from security threats like viruses when we’re online?

Google’s attempt to increase appeal for HTML5 Web Apps

Google explains that the boocklet was coded in HTML5 which is set to become the next web standard that will replace Flash. Google’s Chrome Browser and the upcoming Chrome OS will run HTML5 powered Web Apps hence it is understandable why Google is frantically attempting to show off what exactly this technology is capable of.

We built “20 Things” in HTML5 so that we could incorporate features that hearken back to what we love about books—feeling the heft of a book’s cover, flipping a page or even reading under the covers with a flashlight. In fact, once you’ve loaded “20 Things” in the browser, you can disconnect your laptop and continue reading, since this guidebook works offline. As such, this illustrated guidebook is best experienced in Chrome or any up-to-date, HTML5-compliant modern browser.
