Hi Experts!
I'd like to develop a simulation graphical program that can run pretty much anywhere.  First thing that comes to mind because I'm old school is java, but java just doesn't do it for me (sorry java guys, i was one for a long time).  I'd like something that can run in a web browser or in an application.  Maybe HTML5 would be a good idea, but I may even go 3D with this.  I can't say what it's for unfortunately, but picture something cartoonish with too high detail graphics.

Opinions please!  :)

And thanks!
Mike

You mention 3D so not having more detail the first thing that popped into my mind was DAZ 3D Studio.  However I am not sure that answers your acutal question.  :)

How about Microsoft Silver light with Google Sketch-up,
 seems to cover some of your question, I've only played around with it but it does create 3D and various animations,  pretty complex.
SketchUp is a 3D modelling program for a broad range of applications such as architectural, civil, mechanical, film as well as video game design
