Microsoft made an unusually sharp statement that graphics technology WebGL, which has been promoted by the Khronos Group, is too dangerous in order to be supported in Windows.
Currently both browsers Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox are provided with support of WebGL. Google calls this “the most powerful way to add 3D graphics on the web pages”and appeals to the developers “explore the field of graphic development “. 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”.
In turn, Microsoft has published a statement entitled as “WebGL considered harmful” in the official blog of Microsoft Safety Center. It was published by a group that is responsible for the organization of security of Windows and other products Microsoft.
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.
