MapsGL makes IE look like last years browser

mikejuk (1801200) writes "Microsoft is about the only major browser manufacterer not supporting WebGL, which brings 3D graphics to the broswer. Now Google has used WebGL to make its maps render faster, smoother and in 3D.
This is WebGL gone mainstream and while there have been experimental and showcase pages using WebGL this is the first time users have to ask if they are prepared to miss out on something because they plan to stick with IE. It is time Microsoft did an about face and supported WebGL to make IE a true HTML5 supporting modern browser."
