Khronos Group WebGL WG releases draft specification of WebGL

The Khronos WebGL WG released a draft specification of WebGL, a royalty-free, cross-platform API that brings OpenGL ES 2.0 to the web as a 3D drawing context within the HTML5 Canvas element, exposed as low-level Document Object Model interfaces. It uses the OpenGL shading language, GLSL ES, and can be cleanly combined with other web content that is layered on top or underneath the 3D content. It is ideally suited for dynamic 3D web applications in the JavaScript programming language, and will be fully integrated in leading web browsers.
