Mozilla positions WebGL as the ideal technology for “interactive 3D games and applications with the rich graphics and realization of a new approach to the visual design without using other software components”.

The statement was made after a pair of reports that describe the “serious design flaws” and “security problems” in WebGL. Last report includes a demonstration of how user data can be stolen through browser.
