Default Animations not working in Chrome

I found that the animations starting from chapter 6 were not working in Chrome, the cube that was supposed to be animated never appeared, in fact it did but only for a single frame before it animated itself far off screen.

The reason is due to a change in the time value returned when requestAnimFrame is called. It is simple to fix by replacing
  if (currentTime === undefined) {
    currentTime = Date.now();
  if (currentTime === undefined) {
    currentTime = performance.now();
in the draw method. Animations will then work in Chrome and Firefox will continue to work as before.

More information can be found from html5rocks.com.

It appears that this is a change in the standard rather than an error in the authors source code.
