Re: [Public WebGL] blacklisting NVIDIA proprietary Linux drivers older than 295.* in chrome

It will be a few months before this reaches Chrome Stable.  Hopefully
the driver availability will be better then.

Older drivers have known bugs which could freeze our user's machines.
Blacklisting a driver that's working for you so far is in-convenient /
unpleasant - that's understandable.  However, it's only because you
are lucky and the bug hasn't been triggered for you so far.

We'd rather to be on the safe side.
