Compatibility philosophy

Canvex attempts to follow the relevant standards such that it would work in a perfectly compliant web browser. (If it fails to do so, that should be considered a bug and preferably reported (email)). Since browsers do not implement the standards perfectly, Canvex tries to use a subset that works correctly in them all. Browser detection is used only to set the default options to maximise performance, since different browsers prefer different ways of implementing the same effect. Some proprietary extensions (e.g. opera-2dgame) are used when available, but never required or expected.
