First Test with WebGL

After hearing a lot of discussions about WebGL, I decided to try it myself using my blog.

There are some sites that show a collection of WebGL applications developed by people, and some have really nice effects that you’d have never thought they can be done through the browser. You can find some of these apps here: Chrome Experiments
