How we built it

EXT_disjoint_timer_query WebGL extension

This WebGL extension, exposing the underlying OpenGL ES functionality, allows developers to measure the duration of the commands they submit to the graphics processor. This will allow the development of additional tools to help developers make their WebGL code run faster.


Developers have been requesting this extension for quite some time so they can better profile their WebGL code.
