GLGE javascript library to ease the use of WebGL is released

3D-Test interviewed the developers behind GLGE, a higher level API using WebGL, with a declarative xml format to remove the chore of creating 3D scenes via javascript alone. GLGE hides the GLSL shaders from the developer by implementing common use shaders within the API, various lighting types, normal maps, shadows, fog, etc. This frees the developers up to create actual content, games and applications with WebGL. Read the interview and visit the GLGE website.
