2014 is the year WebGL tips. Do we need more proof than:
- Microsoft is on board, with WebGL in both desktop and mobile Internet Explorer.
- 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.
- Sony built the whole PS4 user interface out of WebGL. 4.2M seats in one whack… and growing.
- The NORAD Tracks Santa site saw 48.8% WebGL success across all browsers & platforms for 20M visitors, an increase of 146% over 2012.
- 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)!
Thanks to some friends at Amazon, I was fortunate enough to get hold of a Kindle Fire HDX the minute they hit retail. Naturally, the first thing I did was pop open the Silk browser and, hoping against hope, opened a web site with WebGL.
Apple, Google: take notes.
This changes EVERYTHING.
