IE9 video: Associated Press builds a visual news timeline

SAN FRANCISCO — The Associated Press built a website that shows a visual timeline of news stories that takes advantage of the new Web technology in Internet Explorer 9, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

Several news companies, including The Wall Street Journal and USA Today, showed off new sites at an event called “Beauty of the Web” at the San Francisco Design Center on Wednesday.

“It’s a bird’s-eye view of news,” said Frances Calandra, head of new business development for Vectorform, which built the demo site for the AP. The site sorts articles quickly by category and time and takes advantage of the animation features in HTML5, the Web standard the new generation of browser supports.

It looks like it’s built to run in a tablet environment with large menu blocks and the focus on photos. Calandra said it “definitely” does translate to tablets like the iPad.

If you have one of the new browsers downloaded, you can check out the demo at http://html5.lab5.ap.org. The beta version of Internet Explorer is available at www.beautyoftheweb.com.

Or you can watch this quick video I took from the pavilion floor in San Francisco. It features Dominic Espinosa, director of user experience at Vectorform.
