    I’m still fascinated by the Mandelbrot. Just find it so beautiful.

  2. Mandelbrot Sets in JavaScript

    Another, and for now probably final, JavaScript toy: Mandelbrot Set generator. It uses Web Workers, HTML 5 Canvas and JavaScript to render Mandelbrot sets in a modern browser (I’ve tested in Safari, Chrome and FireFox 4).

    It’s online here and the source is on GitHub.

    Picture of it running in Chrome is below:

    Maybe I’m getting old, or becoming easily awed, but I find it amazing that Mandelbrots can be rendered so quickly within a browser. I remember my 8-bit BBC Model B wheezing its way through generating low res 2-bit colour versions!
