Submission + - The New Age of Javascript Graphics

An anonymous reader writes: whenpenguinsattack is running an interesting list containing javascript applications showing off the power of the new [canvas] element. This element can be found on the latest Firefox/Mozilla, Opera and Safari browsers. It comes as no surprise to me that IE is not able to run most of them. My favourites: Canvascape 3D and jsMSX Emulator, which exercise the javascript/canvas engines to the maximum. With the upcoming javascript JIT compiler in Mozilla 2.0 speeding up these applications 100-fold, is javascript to become the mainstream general use language, and browsers the mainstream application environments?
