Here are some XUL clippings that show different uses of the
<canvas> element. The purpose of this post is not to show off uses of
<canvas>, but to point out that it can be used in XUL (Firefox extensions and XULRunner applications) very easily.
I also updated the XUL/E (XUL in IE) post to include some of these samples as well. That’s right, you can use
<canvas> in IE using the Mozilla ActiveX control discussed in the post.
Note: These are simply XUL files and if you’re using Firefox (or another XUL enabled browser), clicking the links will open the files in the browser instead of downloading to your machine. Right-click on the links and pick “Save Link As…” to save them to your machine.
