Last year at the State of the Browser conference in London, in an arbitrary but fun test, I pitted the browsers against each other to see which could render the most 3D particles.

This year, to change it up a bit, I live coded a space invaders type game, complete with particle explosions, and invited the browser reps to compete in a short tournament.

The code was from the new CreativeJS games workshop, so it’s pretty simple to understand. You can get the source code on my github, and watch the video for a full (if slightly rushed) explanation.
