I hope I am posting in the correct section, if not, feel free to move it to the correct one (I apologize in that case).

I have tried to look for a way to embed a Firefox webBrowser on my Android app. That is because, so far, the latest Firefox build is the only browser for Android which supports WebGL.

I do not need a full working browser, I just need to be able to render a page using WebGL.

Is it possible?

Thanks in advance,

Sorry, Firefox does not currently provide any sort of ready-made widget that can be embedded into an standard Android app. If you file a request in Bugzilla then the developers could look into how feasible it would be add that feature. (It's not something we've been planning to do ourselves, but we could accept patches...)
