Have you upgraded to the latest version of Google Chrome yet? Did you notice a big boost for 3D web graphics when using the Chrome browser?
You might have known, but with the recent update, the Chrome browser quietly received the big boost for 3D because it now supports WebGL 2.0.
Combined with the new WebAssembly, this new version of WebGL will help to increase the performance of texture and visual effects. Therefore, the performance for games will be better in the next time, especially the web-based application.
This technology isn’t new for Mozilla Firefox or Opera as they already have supported WebGL 2.0 for a while. But Google Chrome takes more than 50% of web browser market share, so they need to make changes carefully to make sure there’s no issue at all.
At this moment, the WebGL 2.0 is only available for the desktop version of Google Chrome browser. If you are expecting this technology on your mobile, then it will be coming soon.
