More neat javascript stuff.

A lot of things javascript have made the “web 2.0″ idea what it is (Ajax and all), well, the new Mozilla-Firefox supports a canvas tag. To my limited understanding of it (at this point), allows some javascript interactions with the web page. For example…. one demo is of a first person shooter game (well… first person walking around carrying a weapon game… no shooting), another is of a web based paint program.

Developer information here, other information here. The only thing I don’t like is that from all I’ve seen this seems to be a Mozilla only add-on tag? Are we heading back to some of the bad-old days of group x pushes this tag, group y pushes this tag that does something similar?

I’ve got to look into this more.
