The benefits of using RGraph
SVG tags are new tags for
HTML5. They allow for
2D drawing easily using
server normally associated with making charts is there.
Not only that but because more processing power is available on the user's computer, they will be much faster.
And, because the RGraph libraries can be compressed and
cached (for example, if you're
mod_gzip module will compress the output for you or if you're
Apache2 then it's built-in), bandwidth usage can be greatly reduced.
This makes it attractive to use if you want to save money at the same time as speeding up your website.

With the RGraph library you can reduce that number to zero. All of the charts
are made by each individual web browser, just like the
HTML that you send to
So you don't have to send any images - you just send the
And that means much lower bandwidth bills and far less load on your webserver.
And if that wasn't enough, because the charts are made using
they will work offline if you view an
HTML page on your own PC.
