        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?

              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.

                      I guess skia isn't stable, so cairo was left as a default.

                        Can you please be more specific? I canít find any mention of GTK3 scrollbars in the semi-recent changelog of firefox.

                          Its almost ready http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTU2OTk

                          The biggest issue seems to be Flash requiring gtk2. I wish flash would just hurry up and die.

                            Every update less interesting. Firefox is by far slower than Chrome and doesn't seem to care about it... Features doesn't make difference when you navigate through the web on your PC slower than your smartphone/tablet...
