WebGL Security - Kill it before it grows?

Dr. Jon Peddie from Jon Peddie Research has tried to make sense of the recent WebGL security issues raised by various companies. He writes "If we can never expose any graphics drivers to the web - we can never have ANY GPU graphics in the browser - and that’s not going to happen." Jon Peddie was recently named one of the most influential industry analysts, who is frequently quoted in trade and business publications, and contributes articles to numerous publications as well as appearing on CNN and TechTV.

WebCL: New hardware power for Web apps?

Hardware acceleration is all the rage right now among browser makers: it can speed up everything from animating graphics to laying out all the elements of a Web page. Tapping directly into the hardware at a low level not only speeds things up, it saves precious battery power, too. If you aren't sure what WebCL is all about yet, hop over to cnet where they have written up a well rounded review of this latest Khronos Group API.
