Browser Compatibility Testing For CSS text-stroke and text-fill

Text API for Canvas

The HTML5 Canvas Text API allows developers to render text on an HTML page in ways that were either tricky or next to impossible before its invention. We are providing an in-depth analysis of the HTML5 Canvas Text API because it is one of the most basic ways to interact with the canvas. However, that does not mean it was the first Canvas API feature developed. In fact, for many browsers, it was one of the last parts implemented. There was a time in the recent past when HTML5 Canvas Text API support in browsers was spotty at best. Back then, using modernizr.js to test for text support would have been a good idea. However, at this historic moment, all modern browser versions (besides IE) support the HTML5 Canvas Text API in some way.
