Chrome WebGL In Action


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.” –

So far, Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera have implemented WebGL integration, right into the browser.

    Way to increase the attack surface of the browser guys. I definitely wouldn’t want to be someone running binary nVidia drivers after WebGL becomes commonplace.
