Jay's Easy Cartridge to DE Guide for Noobs

I agree with much of what you say, especially on preferring a shallower angle for more slicing and less scraping. I cannot comment on the lathering of canned foam. It looks basically the same as lathering a shaving cream. Is it that much easier?
One of the things I've learned is that canned foam seems to pit blades faster than whip it yourself
Which blades might they be? Do you remove and pat your blade dry?

Not that I use canned foam but I'm curious, nevertheless ;-)

Well, here's a list of common propellents in Shave Cream. None of them are inert, and I'd suggest you don't smoke while shaving.
Copied from Wiki - Shave Cream
The first can of pressurized shaving cream was Rise shaving cream, introduced in 1949.[5] By the following decade this format attained two-thirds of the American market.[6] Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) were used as propellants until they were banned in the late 1990s for destroying the ozone layer.[7] Gaseous hydrocarbons such as mixtures of pentane, propane, butane and isobutane took their place.
CFCs were what we used to clean tape heads on computers including stripping the oils. They also cause cancer.
The 'whipping agent' in a shave bowl is just air.
