File a bug asking them to enable it on Linux when the kernel, libva, and other dependencies are up-to-date. If lots of bugs are opened about the deficiencies on Linux, they might reconsider whether crippling it by disabling hardware acceleration is actually reducing the number of bug reports.
Well, this isn't true. They've used the webkit browser engine, and in a browser the browser engine is definitely the most difficult part to write (indeed no one writes new browser engines, even Apple didn't do their own thing and used KHTML. Only recently Mozilla has started Servo, but it's still in its early stages). So you can't say they've written it from scrath.
Regardless, Google is only replacing GTK in the browser part of their browser, not the html engine, which doesn't directly connect with any toolkit. So just looking at the shell/UI alone, that is 100% written by google.
Oh you're right. In that case Canonical supports Windows, OS X, Android and Linux. Aura supports Windows and Chrome OS and Linux. So, by this measure alone , Canonical does support more native platforms ;-)
