HTML5-based recreation of MacPaint, by Martin Braun. Well done.

This is pretty nice. MacPaint was a revolutionary application that came free with the first Macintosh. I still remember the demo Apple gave the IT  department at Rice when I was a graduate student. There were gasps when they cut and dragged a section of the picture they had made.

Now we can recreate it in a browser.
