Mozilla is working on a Canvas 3D plug-in to ship with a future version of Firefox what will be using a simplified version of OpenGL. The hope is that some cool apps will be made using this plug-in and that will force other browsers to use some form of Canvas 3D (and eventually adhere to standards). So, if some very cool on-line game or useful charting application is made in 3D it is possible that we will be coming up with some interesting 3D user interfaces using Canvas 3D in the future (hopefully in the near future).
This brings up the question of what would you use 3D on the web to do? Do you think it would be useful or just fun? The answers to these questions could shape the future of the web.
You can see the demo here.
