<canvas> has been supported on most browsers (and emulated on others) for a while now. Web developers have done some pretty cool stuff with
<canvas> – from niffty reflections to very cool charting  &  to UIs. Recently, I have noticed a few examples of using
<canvas> to create animations. The results are pretty amazing and don’t seem to kill my CPU in the process:
- John Resig’s processing demos  &  (I hope these get published soon)
- Canvas Animation Kit Experiment [blog] & [demo]
What’s it going to take to get this simple bitmap buffer into Internet Explorer?
