Comment (by Thorin):

 Replying to [comment:6 cypherpunks]:
 > Also your test shows...webgl2: supported.. But `webgl2` shouldn't be

 Thanks. If the browser reports that webgl2 is supported, that's one bit of
 entropy. I'll double check with some tests and kkapsner (it's his code),
 opened an issue [1]. This is a browser level API check

 What the browser does in a test after that can provide more entropy: e.g
 error entropy (e.g blocked at a different step of the process: e.g slider
 settings, click to play, extension interference, etc), or provide a hash

 Not sure if meant the API check is flawed, or if TB blocks `WebGL2`.
