Re: [Public WebGL] WebGLSL Media Type Proposal



FWIW we've been using XHR for local development; one has to set a flag in the browser to allow this to happen however since the default behavior is to (appropriately) deny access to local files. This has worked ok for us.

HTML <script> blocks are the wrong place to be downloading GLSL scripts,

should encourage people to use a forwards-compatible mechanism (XHR) to
download scripts, rather than fleshing out a mechanism that won't be
compatible with future features.

XHR is acceptable, but since local WebGL programs are a very real usage scenario, XHR will need to be modified to allow local files under certain conditions. Is it realistic to ask everyone to do this?
