WebGL available in Chrome 9 beta,Firefox 4 beta, Webkit nightlies

I just explored the Google labs 3D body using the Chrome 9 beta and Firefox 4 beta browsers. I have not tried the Mac Webkit which needs to be enabled on the command line. Apparently Microsoft Explorer 9 team does not intend to support WebGL which is a bummer because such a large percentage of users are on MS Internet explorer. It would be great to see some panoramic viewer use WebGL.

Chrome 9 beta ( Currently examples work better in this implementation )

Firefox 4 beta

Webkit ( includes command line to enable WebGL )

WebGL Experiments ( Try the Body Browser, zoom in and out, rotate, different layers, turn labels on and off )

Chrome 9 just came out of beta and has webgl enabled by default.
As inspiration, here's a (GPL) webgl panorama viewer:

(based on Helmut Dersch' original work, I just fixed it for newer versions of the webgl spec)
