I have a new Microsoft Surface 4 and I'm struggling to get WebGL to work in Chrome. It works fine in Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer, but Chrome simply fails.
If I go to http://get.webgl.org, I get this message in Edge:
Your browser supports WebGL
However, it indicates that support is experimental; Not all WebGL functionality may be supported, and content may not run as expected.
I also see the little spinning cube to show that WebGL is working.
If I go to that same page in Chrome, I get this:
Hmm. While your browser seems to support WebGL, it is disabled or unavailable. If possible, please ensure that you are running the latest drivers for your video card
I've scoured the web trying to find out why this would not work in Chrome but I've not had any luck. If I go to chrome://gpu, this is what I see:

Any time I find guides that explain the various flags that need to be set in Chrome to enable WebGL, I find that I already have them all set appropriately.
For reference, here are my versions:
- Edge: 25.10586.0.0
- IE: 11.306.10586.0
- Chrome: 51.0.2704.106 m
My video card is Intel Iris Graphics 540 with up-to-date driver (v188.8.131.5209).
Any bright ideas from the community?
