Enyo is all up in your browsers, and there's nothing you can do about it

In announcing Enyo as open source and launching the new enyojs.com site, HP also posted six previews of Enyo web apps for your browser. Some are pretty basic, like the Enyo Playground code demonstrator and apps to search Flickr and YouTube. But there are two that are somewhat impressive.

The first is StyleMatters, an Enyo-styled app (sliding panes and all - it looks straight out of a TouchPad) that shows off in code all of the kind of things you can do with Enyo as far as the user interface is concerned. Because, well, style matters, and Enyo will now get to spread webOS style to plenty of other platforms. In fact, it's already started.

The second demo is Pirate Pig, an app build off of HTML5 Canvas and Enyo that's essentially and extra-cute Bejeweled. Pirate Pig isn't full of fancy graphics but it works just as a Bejeweled clone should. Plus it's just adorable.

There's also the earlier discussed FlashCards by the indomitable James Harris, which in addition to working as an Enyo app on your TouchPad works as an Enyo app in any WebKit-based browser. It's good stuff, and we love that it syncs your data across multiple platforms.

Both of these apps exist entirely in the browser and we've tested them in multiple browsers on our computer and with a TouchPad. Unsurprisingly, they work great on both. Are we maybe a little excited about this? Yeah, though "little" might be an understatement.
