Self explanatory. Google to the rescue

One would think "why should I support IE", but it actually is a beautiful way to FORCE Microsoft to behave in terms of web standards,
methinks. Like "hey, you ret.. ~cough~ highly qualified software makers are forcing web designers to add some script
to their otherwise valid markup. Care to implement standards properly?"

Important notices from my short experience with exCanvas:

First: it's of course slower than native implementations.

Second: using drawImage with 32bits PNGs reveals the beauty of IE7 claimed support of PNG32 ... it fails miserably : the transparent areas are opaque.

I have not tried various globalCompositeOperations but a quick googling session did not bring anything about VML and blending modes, therefore I doubt exCanvas support anything but the default globalCompositeOperation

In short, it's a nice thing to have but it's far from covering the use cases of Canvas.
