WebGL Draft Released

Ever since WebGL first surfaced, there has been many attempts on implementing it. I have to admit, it is a very sexy technology. For the first time, we can write rich graphical web application without Flash (I'm not here to judge flash since flash is not just limited to providing rich graphical web experience)

On the 10th of this month, the WebGL Working Group @ Kronos released the first draft of WebGL specification. This is really exciting. It means that the WebGL has leaped a giant step forward, from a prototype to a much more mature official project. Now the developers who are interested in WebGL can contribute directly and help finalize the specification. For now, it is predicted that the specification will be finalized by first quarter of 2010.

With HTML5 and CSS3 also in the horizon, down the pipeline, on my wishlist, in my best dream, the web is going to be very promising and interesting. Christmas is coming, I'm hoping Santa is going to grant our dreams this time.
