Mozilla Gains Canvas Element Support - MozillaZine Talkback


Mozilla Gains Canvas Element Support - MozillaZine Talkback
Stuart "pavlov" Parmenter reports that support for the HTML canvas element has been checked in to Mozilla. This new element allows Web content providers to use scripting to draw arbitary bitmap graphics on to a designated area of a webpage. The canvas element is part of the Web Applications 1.0 specification, which is being created by the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group. WHATWG is a loose group that aims to develop new technologies to allow richer applications to be delivered via the World Wide Web. The Mozilla Foundation, Opera Software and Apple Computer are all members of WHATWG. The canvas element was originally introduced by Apple for use in the Dashboard feature of Mac OS X.
