Let It Snow … Faster, from Microsoft, offers you a new HTML5 experience

You may already already tried to search for Let it Snow on Google and tried to catch the snow flakes! Microsoft is now offering a new HTML5 experience Let It Snow … Faster, that makes the most of your Windows PC hardware and the new touch capabilities in Windows 8.

This Let It Snow … Faster experience brings together SVG, CSS, hardware-accelerated HTML5 canvas and more. On Windows 8 DP with support for multi-touch in Internet Explorer 10, you can reach out and brush the snow off the sign and reveal a holiday message or  – simply just use your mouse to brush it off.

If you think your browser can keep up, kick it up to 1000 snowflakes. On my Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 9, I set it to 4000 snow flakes comfortably. If it’s more of a flurry than a blizzard, try it with IE9 or IE10 using the hardware acceleration built into the browser.

Visit Let It Snow … Faster from Microsoft and let us know how its doing on your favorite browser.

Have fun!
