Hi Gino. The world with D3 by Luca is a nice proof of concept. I will give
a look to yours soon.

As I already sais, AFAIK WebGL has very poor support in QWebView. Luca told
someone was able to make it work, with some tricks, on a Linux machine.
I've never tried. Anyway, it fkr sure doesn't work on Windows, at least
with Qt 4.7/4.8.
I hope someone has a better experience to share...
