    After so many years is there a 3D game (shooter preferably) worth playing online thru WebGL?

      What is the purpose of this in regards to Vulkan? Can we not just expose Vulkan in WASM?

        Probably there are some sandbox/security risks to that; but on top of that, Apple has been involved from early in the project, which appears to me to have affected the decision to make WebGPU not basically WebVulkan.

        Either way, that ship has long since sailed; so I hope they do something useful with the differences!

          is intended to provide high performance on these modern graphics APIs across mobile and desktop platforms.

          this is scary. once it becomes reality, it opens all kind of garbage and probably security holes. demand for support on apps on android. security is worst in vast number of android devices.

          i see nothing but security holes and garbage

            I concur.
            I can't wait for the first round of scummy ads that leave cryptominers deposited into the browser.

            The people who think this crap is a good idea are morons.

              Web browsers provide a tight security sandbox. It's much safer than low level C++, possibly running in Ring 0. JS is much more expressive than the BCPL based legacy languages. The high level JIT compiler in JS can also optimize AAA game code in more modern ways, which allows it to outperform AVX2 inline asm optimized kernel mode LTO/PGO C/C++/Rust.

                WGSL is fucking garbage and shouldn't exist.

                  Game? I don't know. But I know a few useful apps using WebGL.

                    https://krunker.io/ was made in Unity and is (presumably) exported to WebGL. Never played it myself but heard it's pretty decent.
