I really miss not being able to rotate, etc. graphics, since Apple seems to block the Jmol applet for security reasons. Does anyone know whether anything is being done at the Sage development level about the situation? I'm using Safari.

You can read this : http://wiki.jmol.org/index.php/Troubleshooting/Java_Problems You can also try the function threejs()

Also, if you downgrade your Java it's possible to keep using Jmol on Apple, at least on some versions of Apple.

There has been a good amount of work directed toward three.js. Jason Grout mentioned it and gave a working example in this answer to another question, and here's a really simple example at http://sagecell.sagemath.org/?q=xbyhqj (also from Jason Grout):

r(t)=(5*sin(t),5*cos(t),t)
threejs(parametric_plot(r,(t,0,3*pi), thickness=5))

You can already get some similar functionality if you enable WebGL with the viewer='canvas3d' option in 3d plots. Not the same, of course, but doesn't use Java, anyway, and is interactive. I don't know how well it supports some of the texture options.

Also check sagecell.sagemath.org and cloud.sagemath.org, both of which can use webgl based 3D plots.
