If you want to make a quick doodle on your computer, there are various apps that can do that. In fact if you’re using a Windows computer, the default Microsoft Paint does a pretty good job of doing just that. However it seems that Google thinks that maybe doing your doodles in the cloud on a web browser might come in handy.

So much so that the company has since launched the Chrome Canvas. This is a web-based application that allows users to make doodles within their web browsers, and despite the “Chrome” in its name, this website will actually work with non-Chrome browsers as well, so no worries if you’re a Firefox user, as long as you have a browser that supports WebAssembly.

The Chrome Canvas is pretty based in terms of its features, where you can choose from a variety of writing tools like a pencil, a pen, a marker, chalk, and an eraser. The images you draw can then be saved to your Google account, which means that if you’re on a shared computer, using the Canvas is a quick an easy way of saving your drawings to the cloud and syncing it with your computer back home. If you’d like to check it out, head on over to the Chrome Canvas website for the details.
