I need some way of overcoming the incompatibility issues between canvas and IE8.
I'm currently using charts.js to render certain charts onto a canvas, which obviously doesn't display in IE8.
My ideal approach would be to detect compatibility on the client and then fallback to an ajax request for a jpeg version of the canvas (i.e. the chart is rendered on the server) but I can't find a way to do this. I'm currently open to any other feasible suggestions.
NOTE: I have already opted for charts.js, unfortunately switching plugins is not an option at this point.
