    I think they probably think WebGL will give OpenGL some legitimacy they don't want it to have. Because if more people use OpenGL, that's less reason to use Windows because OpenGL runs everywhere.

    It's because it's a not a standard - it's a shim between javascript and OpenGL. It's like me deciding to introduce pinvokes into javascript, calling it WebPinvoke and trying to force vendors to support it.
