Chrome is one the most used browsers and our recommended browser. You can enable WebGL chrome which enables Web Graphics memory.

WebGL chrome is a javascript API which allows the computer hardware to load or render 3D and 2D mathematical illustrations within your browser window. The best part is that you don’t need to install any third party plugins to access that because WebGL chrome is one of its integrated features which comes along with the installation package.

On Safari Browser:

Some websites use WebGL for hardware-accelerated interactive 2D and 3D graphics. When you visit one, Safari may ask whether you want to trust the website’s use of WebGL. You have these choices:

  • Trust: Safari lets the website use WebGL, and doesn’t ask about it if you visit the site again.
  • Not Now: Safari doesn’t show WebGL content for this site now or when you visit the site again in the next 24 hours. If you visit the site after that, Safari asks again whether you want to trust the site’s use of WebGL.
  • Never for this Website: Safari doesn’t ever show WebGL content for this site.

Change the blocking policy for future visits: Choose Safari > Preferences, click Security, then click WebGL Settings next to Allow WebGL.
