i'm trying to get WebGL ("OpenGL ES 2.0 for the Web" -
http://www.khronos.org/webgl/) to work under linux but with no
i don't mind buying a new card just to get this working, can anybody
recommend a card with excellent open-source driver?

but i'm also interested what can be expected for other cards on linux
with opengl support < 2.0?
i'm interested because it will result in linux having bad support for
webgl and mac and win excellent support.
any comments appreciated.
