As mentioned previously on about:mozilla, Mozilla’s Vladimir Vukićević has developed a native Canvas implementation for Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser. Ars Technica has picked up the story, writing, “IE’s shortcomings won’t hold back the Internet for much longer, because Mozilla plans to drag IE into the next generation of open web technologies without Microsoft’s help.
