Internet & Networking Exactly twenty years ago, a document was published that played a huge role in establishing the web as we know it today. Twenty years later, and this simple and straightforward document is proof of an irrefutable fact: while closed technologies can change markets, open technologies can change the world.

Considering the current (un)support of WebGL, which is basically an OpenGL 1.2 derivative, on OpenGL 4.3 capable machines, it's just flabbergasting. Even Opera who made a big buzz abou their early support of WebGL only introduced it in their stable release in version 12, and it's still far from complete (support only very basic WebGL web sites, 90% don't work at all)

Then comes the native H264/WebM support, etc... MNG was supposed to replace animated GIF, how much MNG-compliant browsers out there ?

SVG is a mess, support is scarce as well, Opera mostly hangs on that (yeah, I use Opera but I'm thinking more and more to switch) etc...
