ANGLE (Almost Native Graphics Layer Engine) is a free software graphics abstraction layer library and API developed by the Google corporation. ANGLE translates WebGL and OpenGL ES API calls to one of many supported platform-native APIs such as Direct3D 11, OpenGL, OpenGL ES and Metal.
ANGLE is the default WebGL backend in Chromium 85+ and browsers based on it such as Google Chrome and the Brave Web Browser on GNU/Linux and Windows. It will be the default back-end on macOS too as soon as the Metal backing renderer is completed.
ANGLE is also the default WebGL backend in Mozilla Firefox 80+ on Windows only. It is not available in Mozilla Firefox for Linux because Mozilla has limited it to DirectX 11 (only available for Windows) in their browser.
