Google launches Julia Map on Google Labs, a fractal renderer in HTML 5
Julia Map uses the Google Maps API to zoom and pan into the fractals. The images are computed withHTML 5 canvas. Each image generally requires millions of floating point operations. Web workers spread the heavy calculations on all cores of the machine.
We hope you will enjoy exploring the different Julia sets, and share the URLs of the most artistic images you discovered. See what others have posted on Twitter under hashtag #juliamap.

Ready to start! We wish you an amazing 2011.
A Masterpiece. Arcade Fire released their third Studio Album, The Suburbs, in 2010 to further critical and commercial success, receiving another Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Album, as well as a nomination for Album of The Year. Extra points for superb Artwork, Website (in HTML5) and a Web 2.0 marketing as it should be… Nuff said, everybody loves that Album and deservedly so! Album in iTunes.
