My only real objection is that WebGL is not supported on iOS in browsers. Beyond that, I probably just don't know enough about it to do it right.

JyMOL actually runs native PyMOL graphics (without the "Py"thon) using Java and JOGL. It can't just be converted to JavaScript, but provides a JavaScript API similar to our Python API.

WebGL is a different, but very interesting story. Why do you think it's not adequate?
