Quake2 in a browser

Running a full 3d game in a browser window is now possible, thanks to HTML5 and the new WebGL standard. A few Google employes have ported Quake2 to WebGL. I could get it up and running on the last Webkit nightly only, the graphics were flashing all the time and strafing is impossible because the alt-left key is mapped to ‘back’ in the browser, but it’s a nice experiment nonetheless.

If you’re lazy and don’t want to compile stuff and download beta browsers watch the YouTube vid below:
