MDN’s new design is in Beta! A sneak peek: https://blog.mozilla.org/opendesign/mdns-new-design-beta/

WebGLSync

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The WebGLSync interface is part of the WebGL 2 API and is used to synchronize activities between the GPU and the application.

When working with WebGLSync objects, the following methods of the WebGL2RenderingContext are useful:

Examples

Creating a WebGLSync object

in this example, gl must be a WebGL2RenderingContext. WebGLSync objects are not available in WebGL 1.

var sync = gl.fenceSync(gl.SYNC_GPU_COMMANDS_COMPLETE, 0);
