Opera Software De kogel is door de kerk: as we already talked about earlier, Opera is going to switch to the WebKit engine, leaving its own Presto rendering engine behind. We didn't yet know if they would the switch only on mobile or on the desktop as well, and they cleared that up too: both mobile and desktop Opera Browsers will switch to the WebKit rendering engine.

Also WebGL is a crap spec.

http://www.contextis.com/research/blog/webgl-more-webgl-security-fl...

BUT HEY LETS SUPPORT IT even though there are major security issues.

So because something has a flaw, it is crap.

What amazing logic!

I love how the Microsoft fans are attacking WebGL despite Microsoft's alternative being even worse in the security department.

Wow, a single vulnerability in WebGL! If that means it's crap, then all browsers, ever, are crap.

Did you even read the links? There are serious security concerns because it lets the browser basically have full control of the hardware.

Security is important. This isn't minor flaws, it is pretty damn serious.

There are plenty of sites that don't work in Firefox but work in Chrome.

But that still doesn't explain why Microsoft has not implemented it ;)

Fact is Firefox, Chrome are both way more secure then IE. Fact is Firefox, Chrome, both implement WebGL, IE doesn't. So?

And come on, Microsoft crying about WebGL security while doing ActiveX and Silverlight can't be taken serious.

For native, direct access to hardware. Compiled Javascript, eg V8 and WebCoreScript, native code, all do. Its not magic but pretty standard.
