    Imagining a More Engaging Web: 3rd Anniversary of IE Test

    As developers build on the full capabilities of HTML5, touch, and hardware accelerated graphics, the web today is more engaging for consumers than many imagined. The experiences developers are building today simply were not possible just a few years ago.
    Saturday marked the third anniversary of the IE Test Drive site.*What started as a few examples of hardware-accelerated HTML5 to help developers imagine the potential of the web, has grown to a collection of over 140 feature-packed demos. Test Drive gives you a taste of what’s possible with HTML5 and modern browsers on modern hardware: HTML5, CSS3, ECMAScript 5, touch, GPU-powered graphics, blazing performance, audio/video, mobile, games, and more.
    The support you’ve shown is humbling – over the last three years the Test Drive has received over 130 million page views! That’s more than a page per second for the last three years!We’ve had a lot of fun building the demos, and thought we’d take a look back at some of our favorite demos along the way.
    The IE Test Drive Site contains over 140 demos!

    We’re always excited and humbled by the amazing experiences developers are building on the web every day. Thank you for your continued feedback and for using IE10.

    I read about this a few days ago and checked out a game called Contre Jour which can be run in the browser, it really shows how far we've come in browsers.
