Google Working Towards 3D InternetCategory: Open Source
Posted: July 26, 2009 08:04PM
The team at Google have begun working on their O3D plug-in which brings hardware 3D acceleration into Chrome. Right now, the team is focusing on integrating the new code into Chromium, the pre-stable, open-source build of Chrome. This opens up possibilities of not only decent web-based 3D gaming, but also adding a CAD-design program to Google's already formidable Google Docs suite, further bringing Google's vision of a cloud-computing based future one step closer. It is not expressly mentioned, but assumed that this plug-in will also be an integral part of Chrome OS.
