Re: [Public WebGL] option for suggesting "low power" mode at context creation



I suppose you could could have an attribute with possible values of "low", "high", and "dontcare", defaulting to "dontcare". Then this forcing could only happen for applications that didn't choose "high"

It seems like the type of thing a browser could try to do automatically. For example, any iframe pointing to content from another domain could be forced onto the lower power GPU.
That would be an extremely unwise idea, because you'd force iframe using aggregators (such as Kongregate) to default to low performance GPUs for high performance applications.
