This is one of those just-for-fun websites that’s worth paying a visit to. Go to and check it out, come back, and now tell me that doesn’t look just like Microsoft Paint? Cool huh? Now of course, who really needs an online version when you already have the application on your own computer ( if you use Windows), and if you don’t use Windows, you could probably care less about the application anyways. Regardless, it’s still pretty cool, and a job well done.

According to the site, it’s a “near pixel-perfect copy of Microsoft Paint in HTML, CSS and JavaScript, using the <canvas> tag as specified by WHATWG and supported by Safari 1.3, Firefox 1.5, and Opera 9.” If you decide to visit and play with it, and you happen to create a magnificent drawing, you can save it to your hard drive using File > Download.  You have to be using either Firefox 2 or Opera 9 for this saving feature to work.

One last thought,  I’m surprised that Microsoft hasn’t gone after them for Copyright issues.

P.S.- Like my snowman I created in under a minute? Okay, so I’m not meant to be an artist…..
