First go to: How do I browse a site that uses WebGL? where i answer a similar question. After that do the following:

Run chromium using the following parameter: chromium --enable-webgl

Chrome might or might no work with the parameter mention above, at least in the last 3 versions it failed for me on some PCs.

CYREX, thank you for your answer. I read the question you mention before, and I thought it was different to my question. I've tried everything that it is said on the links but WebGL is still not working. I think I'll have to wait a little bit more to use WebGL in my laptop. – DrKenobi Dec 31 '10 at 3:51
No problem mate just glad to help. Let us both wait until webgl is correctly supported. Happy new year. – Luis Alvarado Dec 31 '10 at 3:58
