What is a WebGl?

WebGL Fingerprint is a further development of the Canvas Fingerprint idea.

WebGL is a JavaScript API for rendering interactive 3D graphics in any compatible web browser without using plugins. WebGL applications are made up of JavaScript control code and special effects code that runs on the computers GPU. WebGL elements can be mixed with other HTML elements and combined with other parts of the page or the background of the page. This API draws 3D elements on which various effects are applied. Then, as with Canvas Fingerprint, the resulting image is converted into an array of bytes, which will be different on different computers. Also, through JavaScript, in the WebGL interface, you can find out various text and numerical data about your graphics adapter used in the browser, for example, the name of your video card.
