Firefox 15 supports compressed textures for impressive in browser 3D gaming with WebGL

With the release of Mozilla's Firefox 15, comes a new demo 'The BananaBread', a 3D first-person shooter. This demo offers a compelling example of what developers can presently achieve with WebGL and compressed textures. The BananaBread engine is a JavaScript and WebGL port of the 3D game engine used in Cube 2: Sauerbraten. The initial port was accomplished by a Mozilla researcher using Emscripten, a sophisticated LLVM-based tool for transpiling conventional C/C++ code into JavaScript.
