15+ Best HTML5 Canvas Games That Will Keep You Busy Whole Day

HTML5 is being developed as the next major revision of HTML (HyperText Markup Language), the core markup language of the World Wide Web. HTML5 is the proposed next standard for HTML 4.01, XHTML 1.0 and DOM Level 2 HTML. It aims to reduce the need for proprietary plug-in-based rich internet application (RIA) technologies such as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, and Sun JavaFX.

The canvas element is part of HTML5 and allows for dynamic, scriptable rendering of 2D shapes and bitmap images. It is a low-level, procedural model that updates a bitmap and does not have an inbuilt scene graph.

Some anticipated uses of the canvas include building graphs, animations, games, and image composition. Today we are presenting Most Popular Games that you can play with the help of HTML5 Canvas on your browser. Of-course you will require some modern browsers like Firefox, Chrome & Safari.

  1. I’ve been hearing more and more about HTML5 ever since Apple released their iPad and the whole war of words with Abobe and their flash player begun.

    It seems like a good technology and should be good for the web as a whole. I’m no Apple fan and I don’t think Apple has good motive behind it’s adoption of HTML5 but I will forever support the open standards of the web.

  2. There are some games that are fine, the one I like is the shooter, and some games the computer slows down
