Not in TenFourFox (WebGL requires OpenGL 2.0, and 10.4 doesn't
support it for PPC). For 10.5, a number of bugs have to be dealt
with (which is why Mozilla doesn't support WebGL on 10.5 either,
even in "real" Firefox), and it would only benefit that subset of
cards that support OpenGL 2.0 in 10.5. The long and short is, it
will probably never be part of an official TenFourFox build.

Hi Cameron, I recently unearthed a G5 with an RV350-based graphics card, which supports OpenGL 2.0, and OSX 10.5.8 Leopard. Is there any hope for getting WebGL content on this machine through a build of TenFourFox-G5?
I know this would be an incredibly small subset of users and probably not worth the effort, but very cool for my use case (running very simple 3D WebGL apps on this machine for demo purposes). I just thought i'd ask before giving the machine away for good, since I have no use of PPC anymore otherwise.
Though I hope you find a good home for the machine, by this point a lot of work would need to be done to get WebGL working on TenFourFox for that (as you say) relatively small number of systems, and I don't have a G5 running 10.5.8 as a development system. More to the point, since we now have to do our own security patches off ESR45, I would have even less time personally. I don't know of anyone else working on this, so I'd have to say nothing has changed from before.
I do how you find someone who appreciates the machine and will take care of it.

Thanks for the speedy reply, even though it is a bit sad that this great machine has finally reached its end of life for me - I guess after 13 years, it's OK to look for retirement if you are a computer ;) All the best for your future TenFourFox endeavours!
