HTML5 is the hottest technology of the web industry today and with the open standard WebGL framework, hardware accelerated 3D graphics are now embedded within the browser. As a result we are witnessing a transition from 2D to 3D web content.
The modern desktop web-browsers such as Firefox, Chrome, and Safari currently support WebGL while the WebGL Opera browser is available as a beta release. Internet Explorer users who want to see WebGL content can install the Chrome Frame plugin for Internet Explorer. With the declining market share of Internet Explorer we recommend users download Chrome or Firefox.
Many of the proprietary mobile browsers are built form open source software called WebKit and several devices support WebGL including Sony Experia, Nokia N900, and the BlackBerry Playbook.
Android based devices are leading the way with 3D content in mobile browsers. Mobile versions of desktop browsers Firefox and Opera 12 that support WebGL are available for free download from the Android Market. Another option is a new mobile browser from Mobo Tap called Dolphin.
