I've installed Chromium like described here

The I've set the flag to "Override software rendering list" in chrome://flags and restarted the browser - still WebGL doesn't work.

This is the output of chrome://gpu This is the output of chrome://gpu

See the command line args listed there - what is that --disable-gpu doing there? Could that be the issue? How do I launch Chromium without that flag?

Any help greatly appreciated.

I found it out - the specific version I got from mentioned link has preset arguments:

"GPU is disabled by default. If you are using the OpenGL driver, remove the flag in /etc/chromium-browser/default"

After removing that line all works as expected.
