Alp Toker, one of those graphics heavy hitters, has woken up to give us a nice summary about the 'skia' graphics library which Google uses for the Chrome browser. I like that it has animation and SVG awareness 'out of the box', but it probably won't be a major player until it's fully ported to all the major desktop platforms and has matured a little.

Thank you. Note to self: Next time I need to build Boost, this is what I should do while experimenting:

bjam --build-dir=c:/boost-build/ --toolset=msvc-8.0 --build-type=complete

That builds all combinations of release/debug and dynamic/static libraries. Cost: Roughly 2 GB disk space.
