How to Enable WebGL in Google Chrome Browser in GNU/Linux

Recently i have visited a site that requires and uses WebGL. WebGL is developed and maintained by Mozilla Developers.

I am using Both Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers in my GNU/Linux. When i visited the site via Google Chrome, i got a warning that “Eventhough   your OS supports WebGL, please check and update your Graphic Cards for it to work “. I visited the same site via Mozilla Firefox and it just worked smooth without any problem (Since it is from Mozilla, Under Firefox it was enabled by default).

For it to work in Google Chrome, we need to enable it. Here are the steps to enable WebGL in Google Chrome.

Step 1: Open Google Chrome

Step 2: Type chrome://flags in the address bar

Step 3: Press Ctrl + f and type ” Rendering list “, “Override software rendering list” should come up, Now click on Enable and restart the browser.

It should work now. 🙂
