I decided to do a
<canvas> version to test the speed differences.
<canvas> is certainly a better way to do this, since it doesn’t have to live render all those drop shadows. I probably could do a similar thing with HTML/CSS, just offsetting copies of the text instead of using a drop shadow, but I think this is as far I’ll go with this idea. I get 40fps on safari and chrome using for this test.
What Does it Mean?
