Unigine Demo Ported To Web Browser With Emscripten
Phoronix: Unigine Demo Ported To Web Browser With Emscripten
The Unigine Sanctuary/Crypt tech demo has been ported to run natively in modern web-browsers -- without any plug-ins -- through the use of Emscripten...
Unbelievable. Zero artifacts, smooth on a Intel IGP (HD 4000).
For a strange and unknown reason itís actually working on my Intel Core i3 550 with Firefox 18. (But rather slow; about 1,5 fps in fullscreen.)
works great with r600g in window mode (no artifacts, smooth motion and ~10% cpu usage), but in fullscreen mode there's some stuttering from time to time
No. HTML5/web/cloud/SaaS/whatever is a networked interaction-, multimedia- and cross-platform interface. It's like X11+audio.

So it is an addition to computing and certainly will not replace anything. The only possible outcome might be running a server at home, with networked terminals for both the homeserver and remote servers. They call this a "hybrid-cloud" environment.
Thanks, but no thanks. It's nice for mobile, but I will _never_ ditch the desktop, _ever_.
In windowed mode it shows decent performance on HD5750 with opensource radeon drivers. And dang, scene itself looks pretty impressive, it's even hard to believe it's pure HTML+JS (even if backed by serious 3D engine).
Qudaro FX 570M (nouveau) and T7500 @2.2GHz
Pretty smooth (around 25fps at the lowest). Damned impressive.
Now we know for sure that webgl won't go anywhere
Forgotto mention. I was running in fullscreen mode @ 1920x1200.
Working fine also on r300g, about 2 fps on my RV530.
Note WebGL use OpenGL ES 2.0 and does not support OpenGL ES 3.0 or the full OpenGL.
Also there been some security concerns about WebGL.
Also, Internet Explorer does not support WebGL.
