Sketchpad Is a No-Flash-Required HTML5 Painting App – #Lifehacker

Chrome/Firefox/Safari/Opera: Want proof that HTML5 is the way of the future? Try Sketchpad, a surprisingly robust online painting app that doesn’t require Flash, Shockwave, or any other plug-in—just a modern browser and your fingers.

Run by a team that dubs themselves Colorjack, this “Sketchpad” demo shows off the capabilities of modern JavaScript and HTML5 support. You can paint any color in any shade or opacity, take on patterns and “Spirographs,” and use all the tools you’re likely familiar with from Microsoft’s older versions of that old Paint standby.
