"I'm more curious about why "different computer draws the image slightly differently"
Accessibility. This is important. The HTML5 canvas is about more than just images. It's live elements that can contain text content and other display elements. HTML should render in a sensible manner on any device as dictated by the owner of the machine. All owners are not created equal. All renderings should not be equal.

"Browsers are supposed to provide abstraction from the machine" even if that's true, there's also a matter of canvas dimensions, which can vary depending on your resolution and browser's width. Those are not attributes of the machine, but of the display environment for the page. HTML is designed to adapt to different dimensions, font settings.

I remember when Google was starting out in 98 or so. They were paying people to use their search engine too. I made a small amount of money using them instead of Yahoo, Alta Vista, or Lycos. Substandard has little to do with it. It's hard to make people switch out of what they're used to.

If the goal is to clean up the UI, why show the URL at all unless asked for (CTRL+L or clicking on the "CHIP")? Don't lie to me... I'd rather you hide the URL all together than show me an incorrect one. By showing the protocol, then host name, you're showing me a valid URL, but it's the wrong one. Either say: Domain: , or just show the "Chip" and omit the url all together.

You know, the difference between this company and the Titanic is that the Titanic had paying customers.
