Chromium Browser Is Running Great On Wayland

Wayland

For several months now Intel developers have been working on a new Ozone-Wayland project that allows Google's Chrome/Chromium browsers and other applications to work on Wayland. Google's Ozone component provides the windowing system / input abstraction layer that is where this implementation for Wayland is being plugged into. After much investment, the Chromium browser is now starting to run great with Wayland.

Intel and the open-source community have been doing much work to Ozone-Wayland and now Tiago Vignatti has come out a video showing Wayland's Weston compositor running with Chromium. The Chromium Browser natively on Wayland is able to playback YouTube HTML5 videos, support pop-up menus, full-screen windows, and WebGL with hardware acceleration. The Wayland Ozone work is starting to reach parity with the X11 Ozone work but it appears some work remains.

More details can be found via this 01.org blog post while the actual video is embedded below.
