  1. Gallium is no longer blacklisted as of today!

    As of today, Gallium3D drivers are no longer blacklisted.

    This change will appear in tomorrow's Nightly, and eventually in Firefox 7. I'm...

    Thanks, I didn't know about that.



    Hm, I am pretty sure that we have lots of crashes already with only 1 WebGL context at hand and no GL-accelerated compositing, which would really mean only 1...

    Ah OK, sorry :) I thought that aptosid was an offspring of Kanotix (via sidux). Anyway, Kanotix has been invaluable to me as a live CD with LaTeX running out of the box.

    C'mon, no need to argue over words, it's so intricate anyway. Among all GL platforms, GLX is blacklisted, but inside of it, the NVIDIA proprietary driver is whitelisted.

    The NVIDIA proprietary driver is whitelisted, so you won't need to do anything: it runs WebGL out of the box.

    You can even enable GL compositing which will greatly increase WebGL performance (but...
  6. WebGL is not easy to support at all for a driver,...

    WebGL is not easy to support at all for a driver, because WebGL exposes, say, 90% of the OpenGL API to random scripts from the web. So driver bugs become security flaws.

    The good news is that...

    Yep. Right now, most users don't care about WebGL or about hardware acceleration. On the other hand, they do care about crashes. That's why we're being conservative here.

    This is already happening: on IRC (#gfx on mozilla's irc) at the moment, and soon on the xorg-devel list. Good stuff is going to come out of that.
