An amazing Javascript graphics package: Protovis

Hi Folks

I /still/ hate having to sign in twice in order to post. Grrrr.

Anyway, see this:


Slide mouse horizontally over this chart:

However, let's not develop oodles on incomplete Perl interfaces, p-l-e-a-s-e. After all, we don't want another SVG debacle, do we?


Looks really nice, but its a shame it doesn't support IE - makes it difficult to recommend for a production environment.

That said, it sounds like IE support might be possible with some 3rd party scripts and some extra effort

I've used in the past. It doesn't have the declarative style of Protovis but it works everywhere!

I couldn't find any documentation on which browsers are officially supported, and admittedly I havent done much investigation, but none of the examples work in IE8, and the link I posted *suggests* that IE is not officially supported.
