Canvas Demos

New in Firefox 1.5 is support of the <canvas> tag, which is a new HTML element that can be used to draw graphics using JavaScript. It's not SVG, even though it overlaps functionality with SVG.

Rafael Robayna has created a simple painter demo. A little more detailed is the first-person shooter demonstration.

While both are a little slow and not so smooth, it's still cool to see something like this is possible.

Now all we need is a right click "Save As" option of the canvas box... :)

No what we need more is the ability to save SVG files :)
