Google has released a plugin for all the major browsers and operative systems, that seems to be a rival for Mozilla Khronos.
Today Google made public a series of informations about a new project called O3D.
In the words of their developers, it is:
The O3D API will allow web developers to create 3D applications that want to reach the quality of game consoles.
O3D is now available as a plugin for Chrome, Firefox, Intenet Explorer, and Safari, and for Windows, Mac and Linux:
A New Standard? Again?
The O3D project is also discussing "about a new open web standard on 3D graphics for the web".
O3D already imports COLLADA. It may be extended to support X3D in classical VRML syntax, or VRML.
Google has created a forum where you can submit suggestions on what features a 3D API for the web should have.
So if you agree with this, go and vote the option:
"Create support for VRML or X3D in classical VRML syntax because it's an already existing standard for web3D and it's easy for everyone"
