Images are and probably will be one of the heaviest elements of web sites. Smashing magazine writes a great article on optimizing those images utilizing HTML5′s canvas. I also love how the article goes through the process of getting it working, and then quickly optimizing it so the JS is smaller and smaller and thus more efficient.

I love this retro-looking effect: the old story telling and transition bit of the spinning newspaper with a telling headline. This is built utilizing canvas, HTML, CSS and jQuery — a bunch of my favorite web techs.
This is a really need effect/transition built with HTML Canvas and jQuery that imitates a camera’s shutter effect. I can see this being overused, but in the right situation (and used sparingly), this is really cool.
