Game of Life in JavaScript.

[LINK] Conway's Game of Life

I have been fascinated by the Game of Life for some time now, and recently had the idea to make it in JavaScript.

Although the idea is hardly new, I am hoping that my version will end up being faster, better, and easier to use than the others. Try selecting a Template, then hit the Start button.

NOTE: I am using canvas for performance reasons. As such, it won't work in Internet Explorer; but I am considering fixing that.

UPDATE: I have officially given up supporting this in IE. Microsoft has gone out of their way to not support the W3C Event model, despite being given plenty of time. So, until a future version of IE decides to support the standardized events: tough luck.
