Disable support for 3D graphics APIs

Disable support for 3D graphics APIs.

Enabling this setting prevents web pages from accessing the graphics processing unit (GPU). Specifically, web pages can not access the WebGL API and plugins can not use the Pepper 3D API.

Disabling this setting or leaving it not set potentially allows web pages to use the WebGL API and plugins to use the Pepper 3D API. The default settings of the browser may still require command line arguments to be passed in order to use these APIs.

If HardwareAccelerationModeEnabled is set to false, Disable3DAPIs is ignored and it is equivalent to Disable3DAPIs being set to true.
