GoogleWebToolkit Quake II, showing off WebGL and HTML5

Might WebGL be another way to get gamers to use Linux, seeing as the games are moving to the browser?

EDIT: BONUS! The Google Employees that made this port did a developer session at Google I/O! That video has been published online, and here it is!
