The Khronos Group is persistent in pushing its new 3D standard for the internet that does not require you use special glasses or browser plugins

The new 3D standard they propose will provide OpenGL bindings for JavaScript, making it possible for browsers to natively render 3D without requiring plugins.

So far Mozilla, Opera, and Google are supporting the new format that natively renders 3D graphics in webpages. 

"We look forward to a new class of 3D-enriched Web applications within Canvas, and for creative synergy between OpenGL developers and Web developers."

Khronos hopes to have the first official public release of the WebGL specification ready for publication in the first half of 2010.
