Just for my curiosity, what is the main driver for developers to integrate 3D into JavaFX apps?

Why not create apps utilizing WebGL directly in (full-featured) browsers using JavaScript bundled as GUI apps (via e.g. Meteor or CEF)?

Is it about reusing Java knowledge, unique Java libraries, something else?

Thanks for clarifying,
