3D News, GL, DirectX "WebGL is basically an initiative to bring 3D graphics into web browsers natively, without having to download any plugins. This is achieved by adding a few things to HTML5, namely, defining a JavaScript binding to OpenGL ES 2.0 and letting you draw things into a 3D context of the canvas element." Also see the press release for more details.

Makes the browsers more complicated

So there is little space for newcomers (more features to be a "standard") and leave less options for accessibility.
I wonder what would be the advantage of having such feature in an application that is suppose to give text to the user.
The need of a such feature rich browser is hard to see.
Although 3D effect are nice to see time to time it should not be part of the browsing experience.
