How to enable or disable Google Chrome WebGL

Chrome WebGL is a program that we can find in the browser and that allows us to make 3D graphics in HTML format. What is being done is to graphically accelerate the video cards so that we can display 3D content. However, it is an option that is disabled by default in the browser, so you must enable it to use it. Below you will learn step-by-step how to enable WebGL in Google Chrome.

Step by step to enable WebGL in Chrome

If you have decided to test the operation of WebGL at Chromium, you have probably discovered that this option is disabled. However, activation is very simple. The steps you need to follow are as follows.

Enable WebGL in Chrome

If you’re using Windows, the next step is:

  • You must first open Google Chrome and type in the address bar chrome: // flags /
  • Then you need to make sure that the «Accelerated 2D Canvas» option is enabled
  • The next step is to click Enable WebGL
  • Accept the changes and restart the browser so that they are applied correctly

Enable Linux WebGL

If you are using Linux, the step by step is as follows:

  • Open the terminal and run: sudo nano /usr/share/applications/google-chrome.desktop
  • Then find the line that starts with: Exec = / opt / google / chrome / google-chrome% U
  • Modify it to read as follows: Exec = / opt / google / chrome / google-chrome –ignore-gpu-blacklist –enable-webgl –flag-switches-begin –flag-switches-end% U

By following these short and simple steps, we can get started with WebGL easily. It is true that basic programming knowledge is needed to get the most out of it. However, with a little practice you will be amazed at what you are capable of.
