Before drawing anything in a browser, ask yourself three questions:
Do you need to support older browsers? If the answer is yes, then your only choice is Raphaël. It handles browsers all the way back to IE 7 and Firefox 3. Raphaël even has some support for IE 6, although some of its underlying technology cannot be implemented there. Do you need to support Android? Android doesn’t support SVG, so you’ll have to use Paper.
