Re: [WebSQL] Any future plans, or has IndexedDB replaced WebSQL?

In fairness, and perspective, GLSL is a big leap, adding one more language with neat features like swizzle and matrix math.

SQL is too big a leap for the time being. I'd like to see a continued effort at 'borrowing' from our new web family member, glsl. Typed arrays are wonderful. There's been a little exploration into CSSMatrix for mat4 operations. Interesting stuff.

That's my top-post opinion.

I have a lot of respect for sqlite-- postgres devs gave me the impression they'd prefer a method based API over relexing or reusing the sqlite dialect.
