Microsoft Principal Architect writes “Why Microsoft and Internet Explorer need WebGL-and vice-versa

Avi Bar-Zeev, a Principal Architect at Microsoft, was disappointed by recent Microsoft headlines parroted from a recent security scare report. He writes "Is WebGL actually harming your computer in any way? I doubt that’s a serious or credible claim. And, frankly, if Microsoft has taken a formal position against WebGL, no one I know got the memo." Avi goes on to express his thoughts on the pro's and cons of Microsoft supporting WebGL vs running away from it. If you have only 5 minutes to read something today, make it this well thought out article on the future of WebGL and your 3D user experience. Avi's article ends with "There is clearly only one direction forward for Microsoft and 3D on the web. WebGL is the way." Read More
