Re: [Public WebGL] $199 Google Tablet

According to ZDNet http://www.zdnet.com/blog/burnette/google-io-2012-android-fireside-chat/2637

Q: As a developer, WebGL is great. Chrome doesn’t support it on Android yet. When?

A: It’s working internally. Issues are denial of service and GPU availability. There’s some work in Chrome OS to make it safer, and we’re looking at that right now to see if we can release it in a safe way. Some GPUs are more stable than others.

Ken, can you say anything about this issue? I assumed Tegra 3 has WebGL capable drivers. Why not enable it on Nexus 7? Perhaps you could expose it behind a flag?

The new Android Firefox doesn't run WebGL for me on my Galaxy Nexus with ICS

Pages appear to be running but nothing is displayed.

Every Android 2.2+ device (*) supports WebGL with Firefox ;-) and the slow-WebGL bug is getting worked on ( https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=728524 ).

(*): except for certain versions of the Adreno driver that had to be blacklisted. And yes, ARMv6 support is coming.

So what's the scoop?  Does it support webgl?
