Dashed lines in HTML5

With the release of Chrome 23, 3 out of 4 major browsers now support dashed curves in HTML5:

Safari 5.1.2: FAIL
Safari 6: OK
Chrome 16.0.912.77: FAIL
Chrome 23: OK
Firefox 9: OK (uses mozDash)
IE 9, 10: FAIL
WebKit build 104795: OK

GeoGebra is believed to be the first major web application to make use if this, eg http://www.geogebra.org/web/milestones/dashedCurves.html.

And the GeoGebra developers were instrumental in persuading Google to implement this in Chrome. Visit the Google Code topic to read the whole conversation.
