For platforms which do not support Flash, such as iPhone, <canvas> is your best option. With the help of AI->Canvas, this option is finally viable. I predict we will see the beginnings of a Flash-like development environment, built around html 5 and the <canvas> element, very soon. Like Flash, it will take time to grow and mature. Acceptance of these features will have to grow as well. Internet Explorer users will finally have <canvas> support with the release of version 9. However, the advantages of <canvas> ensure it will become the standard. As a web developer I love the idea of being able to make quick edits to multimedia content without being tied to an IDE/Compiler. Ai->Canvas is a great first step in that direction, bringing canvas art to… artists.
