3D News, GL, DirectX "Mozilla's VP of Technical Strategy, Mike Shaver has rejected Microsoft's criticism of WebGL in which it said it would not implement the 3D graphics standard because of security issues in the design. Shaver says that "there is no question that the web needs 3D capabilities" to enable developers to create "advanced visualisations, games or new user interfaces" and points at Molehill (Adobe's 3D for Flash) and Microsoft's Silverlight 3D which are offering just those capabilities." One discussion of Microsofts WebGL criticism can be found here.

I think the driver issue with ATI and Nvidia is very real, to a slightly lesser extent with Intel.
It may be solved in the future, but until there is (and if there is) ever a standardized graphical stack that is open source (OpenGl for instance), it will be really tough to ever get this to an acceptable security level.
