[Public WebGL] Microsoft Weighs in on WebGL Security Issue



Not in a good way. Sigh.

Plus slightly hysterical reporting

A few blogs on the positive side

I really think the best way to deal with this is for developers to tell MS how important WebGL support is and how they want to see it in IE (if you care). IMO that is the most reliable method of getting MS to the table to make positive contributions to the discussion.

Peace out;
Tony
