What is WebGL?
“WebGL is a cross-platform, royalty-free web standard for a low-level 3D graphics API based on OpenGL ES 2.0, exposed through the HTML5 Canvas element as Document Object Model interfaces.” – http://www.khronos.org/webgl/
So far, Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera have implemented WebGL integration, right into the browser.
