Mozilla is on a role. It wants you to be able to browse and play the web in 3D.

Teaming up with Khronos, the developers of OpenGL, the group aims to create an open standard for 3D acceleration on the web.

“Accelerated 3D graphics with the super-fast next-generation JavaScript engines from nearly every Web browser vendor means that we’re going to be able to start to see more and more advanced applications written using open Web technologies,” said Mozilla’s Chris Blizzard.

Being an open standard, it is expected other browsers will jump on board.

Mozilla plans to release early versions of this technology as a plug-in for Firefox shortly after it releases Firefox 3.5.
