Your card is an integrated Radeon HD3000 series. It is no longer supported by the proprietary AMD Catalyst drivers but it should work with the open source drivers. Most likely you do not get hardware support for WebGL because Chrome disables it by default. See How To Enable WebGL In Chrome On Ubuntu? – bain May 30 '14 at 14:43
You can not install the drivers from AMD web site on your computer. It is not possible because AMD do not support your graphics card any more. It is too old. You will have to use the open source drivers. Please read Radeon HD 2000, 3000, 4000 on Ubuntu 12.10 and higher: fglrx (legacy) unsupported, what to do? To enable WebGL for Chrome see How To Enable WebGL In Chrome On Ubuntu? – bain May 31 '14 at 9:55
Check glxinfo|grep 'OpenGL vendor' – bain May 31 '14 at 11:50
Try glxinfo|grep -E 'OpenGL|direct' and cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log - post the output to and link here. It is easier to copy and paste text than to take screenshots. – bain May 31 '14 at 14:02
It looks like you are using the open source drivers and have full accelerated 3D (Direct rendering: Yes). Why do you think it is not working? – bain May 31 '14 at 14:41

Sometimes Google Chrome blocks 3D support in their browser in Linux due to known driver issues for example. However, there is a way to override this and force 3D support in Chrome.

To do this, navigate to chrome://flags in your browser. In there, search for the option Ignore GPU blacklist and enable it. After that you need to restart your browser to apply the changes.

Doesn't seem to work with Chrome 40. – Yanick Rochon Feb 7 '15 at 14:31
Worked for Chrome 48.0.2564.82 (64-bit) on Linux Mint 17.3 / Ubuntu 14.04 – Raffael Jan 27 at 21:19
