HTML5 version of The Game of Life

posted by Jason Kottke   Jul 12, 2010

So, every time I post one of these HTML5 games or apps (like The Game of Life), I got tons of email from people who say that it could be done much easier or better in Flash. Which is probably true. But I post these experiments because I’ve been using HTML since 1994 and I love it. It’s simple (or can be), open, can be edited with any old text editor, and increasingly capable. Oh sure, HTML can be maddening at times, but I’m fascinated and happy to see it maturing into something that has so much functionality.
