Google Introduces 3D Web Browsing to Google Chrome

We recently reported that the Google added Native Client (NaCl) support in Chrome and now reports are Google is bringing 3D Web browsing to their Google Chrome. According to reports, Google has introduced the empirical Offscreen Tabs Module to its recently released Chromium version. This Module will help users to view and correlate multiple web pages simultaneously. With WebGL support, Google is certain to come up with futuristic 3D browsing experience soon.

These Offscreen Tabs were first introduced by Google in December 2010 through a Chromium Projects page. The page is recently updated by Google with an impressive and stimulating video. The Offscreen Module is specifically designed to allow multiple web pages display on a single screen, particularly for the users having large screens and also allow them to work on all the pages at the same time without moving from one page to another or from one tab to another.

To further enhance the workability of Offscreen Tabs API, Google integrated them with texture API and WebGL support that makes it possible to display graphically complex web pages easily. Google also displays an animated book created from live web pages and refers to the Apple’s Top Sites feature as an instance. On the late hours of Saturday, Chromium 16 build 101678 was announced with Offscreen Tabs support. However, the Tabs are not yet activated and even no switch or flag is available to make them functional.

The story is still building and we well come back with more details. So, stay tuned!
