        Code:
        AzureCanvasBackend	cairo
        AzureContentBackend	cairo
        Or both are supported now?

          Just tested, changing that to skia in about:config makes this demo much faster: http://js1k.com/2013-spring/demo/1555
          Really noticeable difference. Why isn't that the default then?

            Never, hopefully… I don’t want to have a broken scrollbar in Firefox .

              Got crashes on facebook here, and a few other sites. Plus text had lost the sub-pixel anti-aliasing

                Too late, scrollbar already fixed on GTK3 version Nightly.
