Google Chrome beta now features WebGL: 3D web!

You may not find many sites featuring fully three-dimensional content on the web today, but soon, you will. And it looks as though Google might be the first to bring access to such content to the masses. All of the big browser companies have been working to standardize and implement 3D technology into their software for the past year. The tech is called WebGL and it’s based on the OpenGL ES 2.0 API. You can experience the magic right now by downloading the beta channel Chrome browser and then hitting up one of the sites listed over at the Chromium Blog.

Again, there aren’t a lot of websites out their exploiting the technology at the moment, but when WebGL hits public release, you can bet that web developers will embrace it. This is amazing and exciting stuff.
