Sites of the Week #11

July 8th, 2011 by Tony de Jesus

This week, my collection of websites contains an amazing animation using HTML5 (remember to use a HTML5 capable browser like Google Chrome or Safari). It also contains an application that tells you whether you should leave the house with short or long sleeves, a great web blog with a very original design, a CSS Zen Garden (weird? lol ) and an web based application that allows you to easily create forms.

 

Ball Pool

A great animation created using canvas element. Start by shaking the browser, then click on an empty space to create new balls, drag some others to move them and double click to reset the screen.

 

CSS Zen Garden

This website shows what’s possible with CSS-based design. Graphic designers from around the world submit their style sheets to change the visual presentation of a single HTML file. Aside from reference to an external CSS file, the HTML markup itself never changes. All visual differences are the result of the CSS (and supporting imagery).

 

Sleeves

Sleeves is a website where you insert your Zip Code (only in USA) and it tells you whether you should leave the house with short or long sleeves. Original, simple and nice looking.

I simply love their creative navigation. As long as you scroll the page, the blue balloons at each side indicate the type and date of the post.

 

JotForm

JotForm is a free web form builder. When you need to create forms quickly, JotForm is your best friend. You don’t need to waste time with things like registration. Just create your form and post it on your web site. Literally in minutes. No ads, no logos, very good!

Did you find a really amazing website showing a new concept, an original design or a brand new feature? Are you the owner of a website that offers new solutions? Send me the URL via email  (blogattonyjesusdotcom)   or Twitter and tell me why you think it should be posted here.
