VRML Viewers, Browsers & Plug-ins

An open-source(R) VRML and X3D browser written by a group of developers, who wish to produce a high quality, up to date, browser that is in the public domain. The intention is enable Shared Virtual Worlds, and to look good, too. So, while the rendering is great, the control of FreeWRL is fantastic. FreeWRL supports Javascript, Java Class invocation, and the EAI version 1 spec. You can control the scene by the mouse, keyboard, joystick, motion sensors, or just about anything you care to patch in - use the existing code base and adapt it for your sensor, and send the new code in!
