Phoronix: Mozilla's Use Of GPUs For 2D Acceleration
While many are upset right now over Mozilla's new advertising agenda, they are still investing on technical improvements to Firefox, including when it comes to 2D acceleration...
I hope they don't remove the option to "Hide the new tab page" (in the upper-right corner when you open a new tab).
I wonder if there will be any about:config setting to disable the ads.
I wonder if adblockers will be able to block the ads since new tab is a built-in page, not a page on the web.
I wonder if they are going to try to prevent adblockers from blocking the ads.
Also, I think 2D acceleration on Linux is worse than on Windows. I hope they fix that.
Also WebGL needs some improvements on Linux, with many drivers being blacklisted.
Also, I really hope they finish the GTK3 port soon.
And get it ported to Wayland.
OH MY F***ING GOD stop turning it into clickbait Micheal. Seriously.
To all those worried about this:
Don't be. They are not ads, they are pre-pinned sites on the new tab page FOR NEW USERS ONLY. Not ads. If you set up a new profile/re-install FF fresh, it will show some default pinned sites. The sites that were "sponsored" WILL BE CLEARLY MARKED AS SO.While many are upset right now over Mozilla's new advertising agenda
Want to know how to get rid of them? UN-PIN THEM. It's a one-click process to un-pin a freaking site. No need for adblock, because they aren't f***king ads.

I tried posting something like this over in the actual thread, but it was buried by people in a governmental discussion...
Thanks Micheal, for promoting FALSE INFORMATION in order for you to get money. There are so many names I want to call you right now.
For once I am actually glad to be using Iceweasel and not Firefox. No matter what shit hits the fan, I can be sure that the guys maintaining and packaging Iceweasel will make the right decision.
