Mozilla Is Developing Its Own 3D Engine

Dan Mosedale from Mozilla Labs revealed that they are working on a new 3D engine that'll utilize html 5 and WebGL to run in Firefox and other web browsers.

The new 3D engine is called "Gladius" and it is a part of the wider project "Paladin" that aims to push 3D gaming on the web.

To test Gladius, Mozilla created a small game / tech demo called RescueFox. RescueFox is available now online and is playable here.

Oh look!

No fucking right click support again... All these online engines are garbage. Flash would be thousands of times better than it is, by simply adding right click support. This new 3D Engine is gonna be worthless without right click support.

Oh noes, another noob...

First things first, thats just a tech demo not a finished product. You should learn what are the differences between those. Right click support can be done but why would you need it? If you're an actual gamer you're bound to have a mouse with at least 4 buttons and a full keyboard.

Lol :P

You mean if you're a gamer that's compensating for their microscopic junk you'll have a ridiculous number of buttons, in addition to a massive video card and a PC specced up so high that your mums basement becomes the sweatiest place on the planet when it's switched on. Real gamers just play the game, who cares about how many mouse buttons you have or if you're running it a 90 fps on max? Only the loneliest of lonely people.

You're kind of dumb

Clearly you've never played anything beyond the "social" games like Farmville. Extra buttons on a mouse have more to do with enjoying the game than compensating for anything. I like being able to zoom, jump, quick inventory, dodge, and fire with the mouse. That requires more buttons. For MMO's, that means faster access to abilities. And please, what is this basement nonsense? That applies to, what, 5-10% of PC gamers? There are more non-PC gamers that fit that description than PC gamers. And God forbid wanting to get the most out of a game and playing on the highest settings. Maybe you're willing to settle for mediocrity, but that doesn't mean others have to.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

Right, I'm the 'dumb' casual gamer - from the guy who thinks he needs 15 buttons to get his kill ratio above 0. Heard of a keyboard douchebag? Soft spot much? I've been gaming since the multiplayer DOOM beta.

And I mean, I tend to think the gaming experience comes from the designers and producers ultimate visions of the experience they're producing, the blood-curdling atmospheres and stunning, gorgeous architecture and minute attention to details, characters that have true emotion and fluid motivation. Not how high one can crank sliders. But then again I'm not the one with size issues ;)

??

I mean, it specifically says the opposite of that, but if you have that little comprehension of language you can get from it what you want. Nobody will ever listen to you anyway.

Oh noo I have a 2 button

Oh noo I have a 2 button mouse and think thats enough. Anyone who disagrees must do so due to personal insecurity, lack of skill or being a failure in life, nevermid differing opinions, convenience and statistics (gamers who use 2 button mice x others). I am the voice of truth (we're now ending impersonation mode). Honestly if you feel so inferior to people with mice that have side buttons you should just go out and get one, no need to show the world how you deal with your issues.

"the gaming experience comes from the designers and producers ultimate visions of the experience they're producing" - No, it comes from what is actually produced, not their vision (the two are quite often not one and the same) and from how you play it. "the blood-curdling atmospheres and stunning, gorgeous architecture and minute attention to details" - In short, graphics, which you need to crank up the sliders to see how the designers intended you to. "characters that have true emotion and fluid motivation" - Extremely rare in games, you can count how many games reached that level with the fingers of one hand. So don't hold your breath for that. In short, no matter how much you deny it and point at others, you seem to be the one with issues here.

You're such a freaking retard lol

"In short, graphics" So you're illiterate and can't comprehend anything that guy wrote? Or you've just got the education of a particularly simple twelve year old when it comes to understanding text and art. You're coming off as kind of a douche bag. You use Linux too?
"Extremely rare in games, you can count how many games reached that level with the fingers of one hand." Well I guess if you're the guy who thinks CoD and WoW are the highest for of gaming?
" No, it comes from what is actually produced, not their vision"
...
which is produced from their vision? I mean, it's like you don't understand how making something works?
"no matter how much you deny it and point at others, you seem to be the one with issues here." What are you, six? 'NUH-UH YOU HAVE ISSUES I'M TELLING MUMMY' :P Dude you're so obviously being successfully troll'd here, you're too dumb to notice?

Meh

There's no such thing as a two button mouse on a PC and last I checked three buttons is the norm. This has to be the most retarded thread ever, I could honestly care less what gamers use to play pacman in the this day and age. But yes the above poster does have a point some mice do have more the three buttons, they are more in the realm of macros and strafing/pivoting anchors. I threw many mice like that in the trash can after months of monotonous work now I happily stick to a three button $10 mouse. The only nag I have with it is Logitech's mission to offer me discounts via advertisements. Perhaps if I bought a $400 12 gauge mouse plus holder they will stop giving me discounts and start hailing me an FPS slayer.
