Google Chrome team has created an interactive online book called “20 Things I Learned About Browsers and the Web” recently to guide anyone who want to know more about basics of web browsers and the web.

20 things i learned about browsers or web

I love the way how they explain about the browsers and web in a short but easy understand sentences. In addition, I find the whole book design is elegant with nice illustrations by famous illustrator – Christoph Niemann.

I don’t feel boring when reading this Google online book but enjoy the read. Thanks to HTML 5, Javascript and CSS3 that contribute to enhance user’s web experience. You can flip the pages, search words or go to the menu easily by a click. Some of the illustrations are animations which can attract and enhance readers’ involvement.
