HTML5 canvas 2D animation

This tests using the HTML5 canvas element to render animated 2D graphics.

Also check out this interactive canvas animation.

This animation uses only HTML+Javascript, no Flash or video plugin required. To see how this is done, open this page and view source.

Compatibility: IE9, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Opera.

Internet Explorer (IE) before 9.0 doesn't support the canvas element. For older IE versions, this page uses the Javascript library excanvas.js to emulate canvas support, so the animation is much less smooth.
