            Bug ID: 200900
           Summary: Selectively enable extensions in ANGLE backend for
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebGL

Currently in the ANGLE backend for WebGL, the underlying context is created with all extensions enabled:


This was a workaround done out of expediency in order to get bits on the screen. There is a note about it here:


    // Note there are no Extensions3D::ensureEnabled calls here. The ANGLE
    // backend currently assumes at a fairly deep level that
    // EGL_EXTENSIONS_ENABLED_ANGLE is set to true during context creation: for
    // the allocation of rectangular textures, etc.

In order for WebKit's ANGLE implementation to be conformant in the long term, with a minimum of additional validation at the WebKit level, it'll be necessary to figure out which extensions the implementation actually relies on, and selectively enable them during context initialization.
