The <canvas> element is a part of the HTML5 Standards specification and allows for dynamic scriptable rendering of 2D graphics. Canvas Pad demo allows you to play with the Canvas element! Update the provided example source code in your browser and press the ‘Ctrl+Enter’ key to update the Canvas real-time! The demo page is made by Microsoft to demonstrate the capabilities of IE 9 browser coming out some day. It is also worth to visit with Firefox and Chrome, because the demos seem to work pretty well with them. One amazing example is the the example for video playback to canvas (worked with Chrome but not with Firefox maybe due video codec issues).
