Google "Google has revealed that it has no plans to develop dedicated apps for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 for its business app products such as Gmail or Drive." Product management director for Google Apps, Clay Bavor, told V3 that Google "will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8". Ouch - but for now, hard to argue with.

Its not enabled as default, that is correct. Things are still changing and WebGL is a huge thing. When you enable it for all as default you better make sure its performed ct. Especially on mobile devices like iPhone where WebGL 3D GPU stuff can eat your battery if you not do it right.

The point is, its there and constantly improving. In Firefox, in Opera, in Safari, in Chrome. They all work on it, make it better, make it great and once the Tim is come (and I am sure that is ore winner then later) it I'll be enabled as default.

But the IE team does not do anything like that. They not even work on it, push it to the public (disabled as default too) so public CAN TEST, give feedback and help to make there implementation fast, per formant and compatible. Microsoft just ignores it. Rejects it. Case of political reasons since WebGL does not fit into there ActiveX/DirectX vendor lock in strategy. No, its a danger even to enable interoperability.

Its the same Microsoft certified creates own standards to not be compatible with open standards story we saw and still see for decades. After all this years, after multiple anti-trust cases and official public law-punishment cause of that strategy you not really like to argue against that. Or do you? Is your point that all the judges, the law and the antitrust cases are wrong?
