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.

Bas Schouten of Mozilla presented at FOSDEM earlier this month about their use of graphics processors for accelerating 2D content on the web.
