Google launches free drawing app

Ever since Google rolled out stylus support for Chrome OS, users have been clamouring for a native drawing app to emerge. Over the festive period this wish was granted in the shape of Chrome Canvas, a simple pressure-sensitive web app that doesn't lag and saves work across devices.

Unearthed over the holidays by tech blog Chrome Unboxed, Chrome Canvas appears to be a no frills, Ink-powered drawing tool.
