Javascript text blur

P: 6
Alright now here is a puzzler. I am big into creating effects in JS rather than images, flash, etc. For many reasons, loading speed being primary. Now I know its possible to use IEs filters to make blurred text but of course the problem with proprietary features like that are that not all browsers can do them.

That said, is there any way to make a blurred text effect in javascript without the use of IEs filters? Thanks in advance.

Its not exactly blurring, but you can place a layer over the text with a transparency setting of say 30%. If will create a faded look.

You'll have to use a combination of IE filters and canvas (supported by FF, Opera, Safari). See, for example, this link to get you started. Some of the frameworks may have this already built-in.
