An anonymous reader writes “Over on the IE blog they have a rundown of IE9′s hardware accelerated support for the canvas element. They write, ‘With the recent release of the latest IE9 platform preview, we talked about how we’re rebuilding the browser to use the power of your whole PC to browse the web, and to unlock a new class of HTML5 applications. One area that developers are especially excited about is the potential of HTML5 canvas. Like all of the graphics in IE9, canvas is hardware accelerated through Windows and the GPU. In this blog post we discuss some of the details behind canvas and the kinds of things developers can build.’”
