Ok, but i tried to run a game for my little sister and it didn't work. I cleared the cache, re-booted, used different browsers, switched between laptop and PC and it doesn't work. On laptop it says the shaders can't initialize and on PC that OpenGl is not supported.

I apologize for the bad english.

You didn't actually say what you were trying to do. Sounds like view a web page with WebGL content (?) Which one?

Best guess from what little you've said: figure out which GPU you have installed (see Device Manager in windows), and then install the latest graphics drivers for that GPU from the vendor's web site.

It just doesn't work. I'm not a brony myself, but my sister loves MLP. So i tried to run this game for her and WebGL doesn't work. Other games work fine.

By the way, i have built-in Intel HD graphics. I can't upgrade the graphics, because whenever i try to insert a eGPU (external video card) into my Thunderbolt port, i doesn't work. I think i am doing something wrong. Either a problem with the port, or the eGPU.

Is there another thing that i can explain?

Ok. So this:

* http://ponylumen.net/games/3d-pony-creator/

It works fine here on an nVidia GPU under Firefox (GeForce GTX 760, 355.00.09 drivers, Firefox 43).

Try this:

* http://webglreport.com/

it may provide more info on what is wrong on your end.

By the way, if you're not running Chrome or Firefox as a browser, give them a try.

Also, I wasn't suggesting you upgrade your GPU. I was suggesting you update your GPU driver to the latest version. For Intel GPUs, it appears you want to go here:

You know what's funny? I just switched to Chrome and it was all fixed.

BTW, thanks for tips though.
