The Expressive Web (Beta) was recently released by Adobe to showcase some of the newest and most expressive features that HTML5 and CSS3 can add to the web today. Personally I found this to be an amazing example of what’s in the future for web designers and developers.

The Expressive Web

The site highlights the following HTML5 and CSS3 features:

  • CSS3 animation
  • CSS3 gradients
  • CSS3 media queries
  • CSS3 shadows
  • CSS3 transforms
  • CSS3 transitions
  • CSS3 web fonts
  • HTML5 audio
  • HTML5 canvas
  • HTML5 forms
  • HTML5 video
  • Web storage


Each feature page contains:

  • A demo of the feature.
  • Data on browser support.
  • Links to examples in the wild that use the feature.
  • Links to more in-depth resources and tutorials.
  • Detection and fallback strategies for the feature.
