General Development Recently, a new browser war has erupted all over the internet, with various browsers making massive improvements in each release to trumpet those made by others. While Firefox certainly ignited this new browser war, Chrome is the one who started the JavaScript war. The first release of Google's web browser came with a brand new JavaScript engine that was a lot faster than those of its competitors, forcing them to improve their JavaScript performance as well. This whole JS thing has gotten to the heads of the folks at Google, and they've created a site for experiments which show off the power of JS.

Yet, I don't consider that so meaningful. It took years of development to bring JS close to what Flash did years ago: smooth animation (which is what those demos are mostly about).


So 3D modelling and transformations equates with smooth animation in your mind.

I guess you're not aware that 3D frameworks for Flash exist since years... the 3D modelling demo I saw was painfully slow even on Chrome. That's not impressive at all to me. But if you're impressed, ok for me...
