Look at what the cat dragged in with the latest Chrome Beta, where the team over at Google have come up with a new and improved Pointer Lock JavaScript API (a.k.a. mouse lock). To put it in plain English, this translates to gamers being able to enjoy superior, or at least, improved (for those who prefer to be less dramatic in their descriptions, of course) mouse control especially when it comes to 3D web apps and games such as first-person shooters. It will basically remove your cursor from the screen, while obtaining access to raw mouse movement data in order to let you pan the display’s view any way and direction that you wish without missing a beat. To get a better idea on how much more improved the mouse control is, why not spend some time with this particular WebGL Quake 3 map viewer and tell us what you think about it?
