Re: [Public WebGL] WebKit nightly does not recognize "webgl" for context type
I agree with Chris, we should let things shake out for a while. Once we have a version that runs well on everything, including tablets, etc. Then we can flip the switch. Think of it as versions.

It complicates life for application developers and likely ensures that
"experimental-webgl" will have to be recognized as a context type
forever. I expect that 99% of the WebGL applications out there are
walking an array of possible context-type strings until one works. I
very much doubt if any of these applications changes their behavior
depending on which of "webgl" or "experimental webgl" succeeds.
