What can WebGL do?

WebGL enables web content to use an API based on OpenGL ES 2.0 to perform 2D and 3D rendering in an HTML canvas in browsers that support it without the use of plug-ins. WebGL programs consist of control code written in JavaScript and shader code (GLSL) that is executed on a computer’s Graphics Processing Unit (GPU).

What is WebGL example?

WebGL by example is a series of live samples with short explanations that showcase WebGL concepts and capabilities. The examples are sorted according to topic and level of difficulty, covering the WebGL rendering context, shader programming, textures, geometry, user interaction, and more.

How do I set up WebGL?

To enable it:

  1. In Firefox. Go to about:config. search for webgl2. double click on webgl.enable-prototype-webgl2 until the value is true. restart Firefox.
  2. In Chrome. Go to about:flags. Press Ctrl-F or Cmd-F and search for webgl 2.0. Find WebGL 2.0 Prototype and click enable. restart Chrome.

Why is WebGL important?

WebGL lets you render interactive 3D graphics without using plug-ins. It works with any platform that supports OpenGL, and it’s so popular right now that you don’t have to look far at all to find some awesome examples.

Is WebGL obsolete?

1 Answer. WebGL 2.0 is deprecated for now, but WebGL 1.0 isn’t deprecated. See also this proposal. Either way, you should treat HTML5 as a mobile platform to provide the best gameplay experience.
