WebGL benchmarks by Stephen Bannasch.

You can try the new update of Stephen Bannasch benchmarks.
Stephen tell us about new features:

I've updated my benchmark page comparing matrix libraries useful for webgl programming with newer versions of some of the libraries:

- closure to svn rev: 1364
- glMatrix to 1.0.1
- tdl to commit: 59d484f, Fri Jun 3 2011
