Design View - Flashy Graphs Sans Flash: "Let me introduce gRaphael -- Raphael's little brother. While 'Raph' is an all-round vector-drawing guy, gRaphael sticks to what he does best: drawing slick, animated, web-based graphs without the need for Flash." & Design View: "I'm sure some are already chorusing, 'What about using Flash?'

WebKit has very good support for Raphaël, meaning any Raphaël-based effects you create will work seamlessly for the ever-growing iPhone market. Currently, the iPhone, Android OS, and even Palm's groovy new Pre fail to support Flash in any way, and there are a lack of indications that this will change any time soon."
