What’s this? Looks like Microsoft might finally be getting on the WebGL bandwagon with the release of Internet Explorer 11. A new video posted on Vine from Internet Explorer depicts a young browser (just go with us here) getting busted by its browser father for a baggy full of HTML5. The father asks, “What’s next? WebGL?” And scene.
The Verge believes that Internet Explorer 11 will definitely include WebGL support and will be released as part of the massive Windows 8.1 update that’s slated to begin previews in June at Microsoft’s Build developer conference. Originally known as Windows Blue, the update to Windows 8 is expected to right many of the perceived “wrongs” in the operating system, including the lack of a “Windows Start” button and giving users the option of booting directly to the desktop.
