The Tipping Point

2014 is the year WebGL tips. Do we need more proof than:

  1. Microsoft is on board, with WebGL in both desktop and mobile Internet Explorer.
  2. Amazon built WebGL into the Silk Browser and WebKit for Fire OS. At $229, the 7″ Kindle Fire HDX is probably the best multimedia device deal on the planet… thanks in part to WebGL.
  3. Sony built the whole PS4 user interface out of WebGL. 4.2M seats in one whack… and growing.
  4. The NORAD Tracks Santa site saw 48.8% WebGL success across all browsers & platforms for 20M visitors, an increase of 146% over 2012.
  5. And next week, we’ll be talking WebGL at one of the best-ever-attended SFHTML5 meetups. We broke the group’s record for wait list (over 500)!
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you – then 3D is everywhere.

    Whoops forgot to mention one other thing: Opera is building WebGL into Bang & Olufsen smart TVs. How cool is that?

    Exciting news, i just read your profile and it seems like we have similar aim – find ways to share 3D across mobile and the web, in fact I’ve started a website for hosting content and designing shaders – early stages, but would appreciate your feedback.

    Does mobile IE actually support WebGL yet? Is it going to be available same timeframe as desktop IE11?
