What is the current state of 3D in (upcoming) browsers?

I hear alot about 3D acceleration in the upcoming browser releases, including canvas acceleration. What kind of acceleration is this? Would it help one to make 3D games that run fast in the browser? Would one have access to 3D APIs?

How about current generation browsers, is .getContext("3d") usable?

In short: can I leverage the 3D hardware to make apps/games rendered in 3D?

I think it might happen tho one issue that might hold it back is that a big majority of people have older machines that don't render 3D content to fast

I know that there are games that are based online that are 3D and there are some 3D map sites
