Re: [Public WebGL] async shader compiliation

P.S. @vendors, please solve the problems we have right now (making WebGL usable without reservations for all usecases, including low latency ones and complex ones), not the problem we wish we had, but haven't gotten to yet (WebGPU, WebNXT, WebGL 2.1, etc.)

Can't express how important solving this is for a whole WebGL platform is.

I'm currently engaged with an architectural visualization startup and the rendering pipeline is of considerable complexity (though it's all up-front loaded). It generally works fine on GL backends (it might pause for maybe a few hundred milliseconds). But on the ANGLE backend, it completely freezes the tab for 15 seconds on boot. This is unacceptable. </tales from the real world>
