It seems that leaked builds of IE11 are showing promising signs of supporting the open graphics standard WebGL. This means that the 5 major browsers–Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Safari, and Internet Explorer–could support a single, open standard for accelerated graphics in your browser. If you are already using one of the four browsers listed above (disregard IE for now…), you can try out WebGL by going to Google Maps and enabling the WebGL functionality to see 3D elements on the map.
What do you think about the new standard in IE? Is Microsoft really going to embrace an open standard like this? Or will it be some proprietary WebX framework developers can use to support only IE11? Leave your thoughts on the topic below!
