According to the W3C's 2012 December 17 Press Release, "Though not yet W3C standards, these specifications are now feature complete, meaning businesses and developers have a stable target for implementation and planning."

The next stage is what they call "Candidate Recommendation," which will consist of extensive testing and work to ensure interoperability across platforms.

@Joannesalfa Someone more technically inclined would need to translate it, but you can find the Canvas Level 2 specs on the WC3 website as well.

Also, the caniuse website maintains a detailed browser compatibility matrix with HTML5. The overall compatibility scores for the major browsers are:

94% Chrome
77% Opera/Safari
76% Firefox
74% IE
73% iOS Safari
65% Blackberry
62% Android
10% Opera Mini

Chrome is easily the strongest, Opera/Safari/Firefox/IE/iOS Safari are are roughly comparable, Blackberry and Android are a bit behind, and Opera Mini barely charts.RandomExile2012-12-18 17:22:34
