Your browser is about to have a lot more in common with +Instagram!

From a recent presentation [1] on the state of web graphics given by Vincent Hardy of Adobe, it's clear that your browser is going to be able to do a lot more with graphics, text, fonts, and filters very soon.

In fact, the attached screenshot of a slide [2] from Vincent's talk was taken in Chrome 19 which, as you can see, already supports -webkit-filter [3], giving designers the ability to modify how visual elements appear without altering the source material.

Presuming these capabilities make it into the flotilla of popular browsers soon, it'll just be a matter of time before clever designers start to take advantage of them in interestingly expressive ways!
