JavaScript Web Drawing Frameworks

JavaScript Web Drawing Frameworks
Over at Smashing Magazine they have put together a very good post about JavaScript web drawing frameworks. The post pits Paper.js against Processing.js against Raphaël. All three frameworks allow you to do some great things in the browser through JavaScript and give you a good alternative to Flash for web animation. The frameworks are pretty close in a lot of ways, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.

Below is the overview of each framework from the post.
