WebGL is a JavaScript API for rendering interactive 3D and 2D graphics within any compatible web browser without the use of plugins. WebGL is fully integrated with other web standards, allowing GPU-accelerated usage of physics and image processing and effects as part of the web page canvas.

WebGL programs consist of control code written in JavaScript and shader code that is executed on a computer's Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). Shaders are written in OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL), a high-level shading language with a syntax based on the C programming language.

WebGL is designed and maintained by the Khronos Group, a consortium of companies with a vested interest in the development of open standards for the graphics industry.

What is WebGL used for?

WebGL is a web standard created to display 3D graphics in the web browser. It uses the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) of the computer to render interactive 3D graphics without the need for any plug-ins. WebGL is used by web developers to create interactive 3D applications such as video games, 3D visualisations and simulations.

How can I enable WebGL in my browser?

WebGL is a web standard created to display 3D graphics in any web browser. To enable WebGL in your browser, you will need to visit the browser's settings and enable the "WebGL" option. Once enabled, you will be able to view 3D graphics on any website that supports WebGL.

Can Chrome run WebGL?

Yes, Chrome can run WebGL. WebGL is a web standard that allows for interactive 3D graphics to be rendered in web browsers. In order to view WebGL content in Chrome, you will need to have a graphics card that supports hardware-accelerated 3D graphics.

Why is my WebGL disabled in Chrome?

The reason your WebGL is disabled in Chrome is most likely because your graphics drivers are out of date. To fix this, you'll need to update your drivers.

There are two ways to update your drivers: manually and automatically.

Manually updating your drivers requires you to find the correct driver for your graphics card and operating system. This can be a bit tricky and time-consuming, so we recommend using a driver update tool to make the process easier and faster.

An automatic driver update tool, like Driver Easy, can scan your computer for outdated, missing, and corrupt drivers and automatically update them to the latest, most compatible version.

Once you've updated your drivers, restart your computer and check to see if your WebGL is now working in Chrome. Which browsers support WebGL? Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Internet Explorer 11 all support WebGL.
