Javascript vs. Demoscene

What you are looking at is a javascript remake of a demoscreen from the world famous Union Demo (1989). The screen was originally designed and programed by the TNT-Crew. It firmly remains one of my all time favorite screens from my all time favorite demo.

I built it yesterday as a test. The Starballs screen was an easy pick, it was possible to reach some similarity to it with javascript, and I allready had it done as a java applet. Far from being any groundbreaking stuff, what I am doing is simply testing how different browsers cope with some javascript things.

My favorite browser for viewing this is Opera. My favorite browser Firefox doesn't handle it so well.

Still, it's a nice piece of geek nostalgia.
