New version brings hardware-accelerated canvas among several other updates and fixes.
Google has launched the latest version of its Chrome web browser. Version 18 includes hardware-accelerated rendering for HTML5 canvas element on Windows as well as Mac OS X. This helps reduce the load on the CPU, which is offloaded on to the GPU. Interestingly, this feature has been available for some time in the browser, but it was disabled by default, and the new version will keep it enabled. It must be noted here that this feature will work only on systems with compatible graphics hadware. To find out whether your system is compatible, just type "chrome://gpu" in the Chrome browser.

Platform: Windows \ Mac \ Linux
Check if your system supports hardware acceleration in HTML5 canvas.
