WebGL Support

I have been recently tasked with following back up with SauceLabs to see the status of adding WebGL support.  One of our emerging products relies heavily on it, and has we did host physical machines in-house to run their test suite.  As we are expanding our test suite, I'm looking into a more scalable solution for this.  I wanted to check on that status of adding this support to SauceLabs.

    This is incredibly important to the project I'm working on.

    This is a blocking issue for us.

    New mapping engines on the market such as Mapbox GL. Is going to be a big segment for you as it has a native runtime too.

    Thanks for the sites for reference. 

    I ended up using, which seemed to provide consistent results.

    Discussing with our engineering teams, enabling this would require that we write our own custom graphics drivers for both Windows and Mac, a substantial engineering effort. We will continue to evaluate adding this to our roadmap. Thank you for the feedback!

    Also try - this page implements Mapbox as a canvas element - it fails to load in Chrome.

    Hi Sauce Users,

    Could I please get a few examples of WebGL sites so I could do some tests? The ones that I've been testing with seem to work, so I'm trying to find an example that doesn't work.

    This is essential for our product testing as well.

    This is not trivial for sauceLabs as it requires 64-bit machines to run and would be quite performance heavy in lots of cases.

    This is a bit niche-y, but would be very useful for us.
