Ok so I’m somewhat behind the times with this but I’m finally comfortable with developing my games with the CANVAS element. There’s a very simple reason for this – the most popular browser in the world is about to support it with version 9. Yes, Microsoft it seems have bowed to increasing pressure and have included support for HTML5’s canvas element in IE9.
Quite what level of support we will see I don’t know. In fact I’ll hold my hands up and say as of right now I know nothing of the functionality offered by it anyway. I am a complete noobie to canvas and for me the whole thing is really rather exciting.
