The question is who failed: Google for not providing wrapper in chromium to OpenGL on desktops or Nvidia for not providing OpenGL ES 2.0 library on Linux. Or me having Geforce 8200 with support for OpenGL 3.3 only.

Same problem in Gentoo:
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=348841

Can someone having Geforce with OpenGL 4.1 can confirm that symlinking libGLESv2.so to Nvidia's libGL.so makes chromium correctly display WebGL?

Chromium should not crash when libGLESv2.so is not present.

OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL renderer string: GeForce GTX 285/PCI/SSE2
OpenGL version string: 3.3.0 NVIDIA 260.19.29
OpenGL shading language version string: 3.30 NVIDIA via Cg compiler
Have not set any symlinks or any other magic and it "just works" (tm).

Code:
rpm -q chromium
chromium-9.0.600.0-2.fc14.x86_64
