Graphics on the Web: Going Beyond Images and Rectangles
Over the past few years, browser innovation has proceeded at a fever pitch. As a result, the open web has many capabilities that were not possible even a few years ago, all available in a standards-compliant and cross-platform way. In this presentation, we'll look at some of the recently available capabilities, as well as provide a look at features that are currently being worked on. We'll also examine efforts to get 3D capabilities into the browser, and talk about some of the core improvements in browser technologies that are making this possible.
Vladimir Vukicevic has been involved with the Mozilla project for four years, and is currently the Firefox technical lead. Vlad is interested in bringing new capabilities to the open web platform, especially in the graphics and multimedia areas, to enable the development of rich and engaging web applications. In the past, he's been involved in improving portions of the Firefox UI, optimizing the browser's rendering layer, as well as implementing features such as the HTML5 Canvas in Firefox.
