You may remember that in December, Microsoft launched a "Let it Snow" web site from the Internet Explorer team that showcased the power of HTML5-based web browser effects. Today is Valentine's Day and to celebrate, the IE team has created a new HTML5 site for the occasion, titled "Love is in the Air."
On the official IE developer's blog site, team member Rob Mauceri writes that the Love is in the Air page "brings together hardware-accelerated HTML5 canvas, SVG, CSS transforms & transitions, WOFF, audio, and more." The site shows a ton of hearts on the screen, along with an IE logo with a face, hair, arms and legs. The logo is dancing to a tune which you can listen to if you use Internet Explorer 9. You can adjust how many hearts show up on screen at once, up to a massive 4,000.
The site also has a special message that you can discover by moving your mouse cursor above the big heart. The message is different if you use Chrome, Firefox or some other HTML5 browser. The blog also states that if you have the Developers Preview edition of Windows 8, you can use the included Internet Explorer 10 web browser and your fingers to reveal the special Valentine's Day message.
