Q. What is WebGL?
A. WebGL is an open source, cross-browser 3D graphics platform for HTML. It uses the OpenGL shading language and can be cleanly combined with other web content that is layered on top or underneath the 3D content. It is ideally suited for dynamic 3D web applications in the JavaScript programming language, and all leading web browsers are committed to fully support WebGL. WebGL is fully integrated into the browser and is NOT a plug-in.
As an API for the World Wide Web, WebGL necessarily conforms to the security principles of the web platform, and was designed with security in mind from day one.
