Graphics

We want you to have greater control over the graphics that give your content power.

Create beautiful compositions with blend modes

Blend modes are common in graphic design, but until now they could only be achieved on the web through static images. With blend modes in browsers, you can get these same effects easily without creating pre-rendered images. Discover how to combine this capability with animation and responsive design techniques to create beautiful and engaging compositions.

Applications

The web is the foundation for your next-generation applications. We want to help make it the best it can be.

Access native device functions through JavaScript

Apache Cordova is a set of device APIs that lets you access native device functions such as the camera or accelerometer from JavaScript. This allows your smartphone app to be developed with just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Apps that use Cordova are packaged as apps using the platform SDKs, and thus can still be made available for installation from the standard device app stores.

We are actively working on deprecating Apache Cordova APIs to defer to the HTML APIs defined within W3C – and we are contributing to these efforts. We are already implementing DeviceOrientation Event, Media Capture API, and more.
