Programming: CanvasGraph.js

CanvasGraph is a library to draw charts using JavaScript. It doesn't work at the moment with Internet Explorer and I think SVG instead of Canvas is the way to go in the near future, but it's still useful in a lot of cases.

Creating charts by running a program on the server to make PNG or GIF files is just lame. I really never understook why charts are not part of the HTML standard. SVG is a good step in the right direction, but it tries to compete with flash, why not compete with charts instead? Wouldn't it be cool if as you mouse over a chart it shows you the Y value at your current position and this would be part of the browser, oh well?
