I found it odd since I knew that by default Google Chrome would have WebGL enabled. After doing some research into the matter I found that my ATI graphics card was on Google Chrome's blacklist of graphics cards, which meant that the hardware graphics acceleration was disabled. After doing some more hunting around I found a small command line which fixed the problem. I just used the two steps below to fix my problem.
- Open a terminal window by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T
- Copy/write in the command line below
google-chrome --enable-webgl --ignore-gpu-blacklist
