There are plenty of ways to allow users to draw a signature in a browser window, many involving clever jQuery plugins. Everything is going digital and this is the future we must all look forward to. Here are the best digital signature plugins I’ve found.

1. jSignature

A jQuery plugin that simplifies creation of a signature capture field in a browser window, allowing a user to draw a signature using mouse, pen, or finger. Check out a demo.

2. Signature Pad

A jQuery plugin for assisting in the creation of an HTML5 canvas based signature pad. Records the drawn signature in JSON for later regeneration. Check out a demo.

3. jQuery UI Signature

A jQuery UI plugin that captures or draws a signature. It requires the jQuery UI widget and mouse modules and needs the excanvas.js add-in for older IE versions.
