Nop, je kan dit niet zomaar doortrekken naar je 3D games. Maar waarschijnlijk zal er wel een zekere correlatie tussen zijn:
His favorite example, he said, is the fish tank — a demonstration in which users can add up to 1,000 fish to a virtual aquarium. In IE9, they zip around like speed demons. In Firefox, they barely budge.
The problem, Nightingale said, is that Microsoft is not using WebGL, the 3D web standard, because IE9 doesn’t support it.
“They have to do it using Canvas 2D, which is a technology they do support, and it’s great, because it’s an open web technology, so it’s nice to see them trumpeting it. But it’s not actually what any developer would choose to use for 3D graphics,” he said. “You would use a 3D API for that. What’s funny is that if you reimplement the fish tank demo using WebGL, it screams on any browser that supports WebGL,” including Firefox.
