Hi Nagendra,

I don't think we support use of OpenGLES 1.1. Making WebKit compatible 
with this older version of OpenGLES would probably require significant 
technical expertise.

I'm not very familiar with OpenGL or OpenGLES. Maybe somebody with more 
experience would be able to provide a more detailed response.

Good luck,
