html2canvas allows you to take “screenshots” of webpages or parts of it, directly on the users browser. The script renders the current page as a canvas image, by reading the DOM and the different styles applied to the elements.

It does not require any rendering from the server, as the whole image is created on the clients browser. However, for browsers without canvas support alternatives such as flashcanvas or ExplorerCanvas are necessary to create the image.

The script should work fine on the following browsers: Firefox 3.5+, Google Chrome, Newer versions of Opera, >=IE9 (Older versions compatible with the use of flashcanvas).
