Please note that Bespin is no longer using canvas: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-canvas-api/2011AprJun/0123.html 

Also keep in mind that creating 'cooler UI' by drawing it yourself is a *lot* of work - anything more complex than a custom checkbox or button is a serious amount of work, and you lose any platform benefits. I think that developers will stay away from complex custom controls due to implementation cost more than anything else - 'more development time' is usually the last thing any software project has.

A good example was the first Bespin release. They should have used a contenteditable section but instead they chose to use their own RTE.

Well, if you are going to create flow charts, graphics, etc. you have the ability to draw them. There are some developers that may just think they can create a cooler UI with it. You can't draw a dynamically changing Pie chart with a web form.

Hello,

I am looking for some convincing reason that a developer use Canvas for designing interactive 

UI on web form instead of common designing web forms.

What's your opinion?

Best Regards
