These pages depend on a recent internet
technology call webgl. Microsoft's Internet Explorer does not yet
support this technology. Google's Chrome and Firefox version 4 do
support webgl. I have also read that Apple's Safari browser supports it when
the computer is running with the Snow Lepoard operating system. Some features in these pages
make heavy use of your video card and may not work well with the Intel graphics accelerators
that are present in many notebooks and low cost computers.
Warning: Apparently just updating Firefox to version 4 is not enough to enable webgl. When I upgraded from Firefox 3 to 4 on my notebook, webgl did not work. Using a suggestion I got from an internet search, I tried updating the drivers for my video chipset. Webgl worked after the video driver update. As an alternate option, I noticed that webgl worked fine in Google Chrome prior to my video driver update.
