This little application comes courtesy of the uBrowser team, who’ve managed make a browser with the ability to render web pages in an almost fully interactive, 3d environment. Using Mozilla’s Gecko rendering engine and OpenGL, the contents of a page is grabbed as its being rendered and displayed in 3d form. There are a number of options you choose from when viewing your page; we found the cube to be most impressive, but you can just as easily choose a globe or flag to spruce up your surfing experience. The page can be rotated by 360* and it claims to show most of the pages that Firefox 1.5 does. Inevitably, 10 minutes in and the novelty starts to wear off as your eyes slowly begin to buckle under the strain, yet this is an interesting proof-of-concept project with a lot of potential.
