I just can't understand why Google/Mozilla/Opera/whatever don't just 
build on the OpenVRML or FreeWRL libraries.
I believe they are both based on OpenGL so presumably portable across 
unix/Win32 and I imagine their licences are intended for it?

Then the browsers would have instant X3D ability with basically 
no effort on their part. 

I just don't understand their desire to aim at such a low level
OpenGL interface.
