— THE SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE

ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL.

Internet Explorer saw it’s Beta release this week. I think many of us would groan at the merest mention of Microsoft’s blighted browser, (As the ongoing Ban IE6 campaign so ably illustrates), so you’d have to create something special to make people consider a swap over to IE9. Enter Big Spaceship. They have created a wonderful browser experience (built with HTML5…) Always Beautiful letting you create your own SVG (highlighting the browsers own SVG capabilities) wallpaper, accompanied by a rather lovely tune from Ming. This really is a cracking bit of interactivity, using some great retro graphics to augment the lovely tune and the intuitive flowing animations. The even neater trick, is that to see the ‘full’ experience, you have to download the browser… we’ll see about that. Brilliant.
