The Khronos Group this week announced more details on its new WebGL working group for enabling hardware-accelerated 3D graphics in Internet pages without the need for browser plug-ins. First announced at the Game Developers Conference in March of 2009, the WebGL working group includes many industry leaders such as ATI/AMD, Ericsson, Google, Mozilla, Nvidia Corp. and Opera.
“The Web has already seen the wide proliferation of compelling 2D graphical applications, and we think 3D is the next step for Firefox. We look forward to a new class of 3D-enriched Web applications within Canvas, and for creative synergy between OpenGL developers and Web developers,” said Arun Ranganathan of Mozilla and chair of the WebGL working group.
