Firefox 1.5 (alpha 2)  canvas element for programmable graphics could support OpenGL API-based 3D c

The open source Firefox Web browser continues to grow in popularity.  Firefox 1.5 alpha 2, comes with many features for XML developers, including XML parsing, XHTML, CSS, XSLT, SVG, XML Events in JavaScript, and XForms. It also includes a new canvas HTML element for programmable graphics. canvas is an element that serves as a scriptable, bitmap drawing surface for things like business presentation graphics, specialized forms controls, simulations, and complex data visualization. Mozilla’s canvas currently supports only two-dimensional graphics, but 3D is on the horizon if OpenGL API facilities are made available for the Mozilla platform.  OpenGL developers are encouraged to get involved.
