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.

You dont think simple 3d toys can really fulfill serious needs do you?

SVG is the what html should've been.
The combination of SVG+Javascript+CSS gives us an awesome platform where designers can truly design and developers can truly develop. Machines can read real machine-readables (SVG's) that to stupid human has touched (is most cases). Real browser compatibility and more.

Pity that we are on the totally wrong direction.

SVG+Javascript+CSS gives us flash five years ago, minus a bunch of nifty things and a cool editor.
