I'm trying to run webgl apps in my web browser but whenever I try to, nothing happens so I did some googling and found that ubuntu-restricted-extras can be installed to enable webgl. One of my friends installed the package on their system and was able to run the webgl app that I was trying to run. When I tried to install the package using thee ubuntu software center, the download stalled so I had to kill the process.
