    I need help on knowing if this pop up warning is legitimate and if not how do I get rid of this...I have Onyx, Malwarebytes, Ghostery and Adblock in my MBP..
    thanks for your help.
    So after suffering this problem for the past 12 months I believe I finally know what is going on. It's not the browser, it's the system and how it uses or doesn't fully support OpenGL which some websites still use. OpenGL handles the graphics on the computer in particular games and videos.

    The OpenGL deprecation

    Apple's developer documentation advised that active development has ceased for OpenGL and OpenCL on the Mac, and that the APIs will only get "minor changes" going forward.

    "Apps built using OpenGL and OpenCL will continue to run in macOS 10.14, but these legacy technologies are deprecated in macOS 10.14. Games and graphics-intensive apps that use OpenGL should now adopt Metal. Similarly, apps that use OpenCL for computational tasks should now adopt Metal and Metal Performance Shaders," the company noted.

    In software, "deprecation" means that a feature has been superseded and that while the old version should still work for the time being, it's advised to stop using it moving forward and to prepare for a future where it is removed entirely.

    Except websites don't use OpenGL, but rather WebGL if they want to utilize the GPU for graphics. So not sure this is related.

    I'm guessing that the user would get some sort of notice if this was needed??? Yes??? Maybe???
