FF3.1b2, Safari 4b, and html 5 canvas, continued

The previous post described improved support for the HTML 5 canvas. It turns out the latest betas of both Firefox and Safari also support the canvas toDataURL method.

An obvious use for this method is to let users easily copy and paste rendered depictions into other applications.

    function saveToBitmap() {
        var canv = $('#canv');
        var img = $('img#bitmap');
        img.attr('src', canv[0].toDataURL());
