This week James Senior speaks to Josh Santangelo from Stimulant about their shiny new HTML 5 app built specifically for today's IE9 Beta launch. 

The app takes data from Seattle's community-based radio station, KEXP, and visualizes their playlists in cool ways. As well as being drop-dead-gorgeous, the app shows off some of the new HTML 5 features implemented in IE9 Beta, including Canvas, SVG, Custom Fonts, Video, and more.

Josh also explains what it was like to apply his existing dev skills to developing HTML and JavaScript apps, including editing jQuery in Visual Studio 2010 with its powerful intellisense/autocomplete features.

    Cool little app. Some details would be nice. Both of your personalities are as dry as the Sahara. Awkward!

    Thanks for the update on this new app for the beta version of IE9. I haven’t downloaded it yet, but I’ve heard that the new IE has a lot of exciting features. Are there any in particular that stand out to you?
