WebGL support in WebKit-Clutter: Part 2

Following up on my work from last december, I have a branch of webkit-clutter that runs most of the WebGL demos that float around the web. The main differences are that the required new API has been accepted into Cogl and that there's a lot more code shared with the other WebKit ports.

Right now bigger applications are not working because of this bug which also affects the Gtk+ port, but hopefully it will be fixed soon.

The code lives in this branch and you will need this Cogl branch with a recent Clutter 1.10 release.

As before, thanks to my employer Collabora for allowing to work on this.

Does this mean I'll be able to use Totem's clutter-powered web browser plugin without awful crashes very soon?

@hadess: Unfortunately, I'm afraid this work won't reduce the chances of crashes.

What are those awful crashes, do you have a link to a bug report?

Or were you meaning to ask whether replacing webkit-gtk+ with webkit-clutter could fix those crashes?
