    notebook, core2duo, 2.1GHz, Quadro NVS 140M, binary blob
    seamonkey: 2 fps
    firefox: not installed
    opera: 14 fps

    workstation, Athlon 64X2, 2.6GHz, Radeon HD 5770, fglrx 10.7:
    seamonkey: 11 fps
    firefox: 14 fps
    opera: 10 fps

    as above, OSS drivers:
    seamonkey: 1 fps
    firefox: 1 fps
    opera: 12 fps

    While seamonkey 2.0.6 and opera 10.61 were 64bit, I've used a 32bit-install of firefox 3.6.8.
    In all cases, kwin3 with compositing was running.

    The fps were fluctuating quite a bit and I didn't do any repeat runs, so take the numbers with a grain of salt.

    Hey guys, so whats the current consensus on this? will we be able to benefit from rendering accelleration in browsers?

    Im an end user - not a developer ( at least not requiring gpu for my web app programming), so this topic really interests me, since HTML5 IS around the corner.

    Sorry, just to be clear we have debug/verbose mechanisms for the developers, I thought you were asking for a way to see for yourself which functions were accelerated.

    Sounds like you are suggesting a verbose debug mechanism for regular users... other than "it works on our hardware but breaks on yours" scenarios how do you see that being useful ? Doesn't it need a developer to analyze the results anyways ?

    Not like I remember how to do that or anything...
    i don't wanna be mean or something since i know that fglrx priority is some workstation apps mostly but since the driver tend always to be heavily bugged at most levels(opengl feature/shaders/uvd/etc) it wouldn't make sense to put a button on catalyst control center to activate verbose hell like debug option?

    i know your priority is workstations but remember your PR department that ppl buying firegl or quadro always tend to use in their PC's the respective consumer level radeon/geforce cards, so many users out there looking for a workstation card won't think too good about firegl cards if they have a pc with a radeon using fglrx these days(ofc i assume this type of users wont go to radeon until is stable enough), so an easy way to debug the driver should help in the workstation market in the long run since that would help on the quality of the driver and give a better image to your hardware on linux

    If anyone is running the open source drivers I guess it would be interesting to see what kind of numbers we see with those.

    OK, I get "error on page" with IE8 on Vista

    The page uses a lot of features, and causes a huge strain on the rendering code... right now firefox 3.6.9

    1280x1024 windowed - 14fps
    1920x1200 windowed - 5fps

    I would honestly expect at least 30fps on 1920x1200 with a current generation video card ( HD5770).

    Geez that page takes a long time to load on dial-up... what is it doing, downloading the entire internet so you can scroll through it ?

    to clarify - i run Gnome not KDE - and all i want is to have decent performance of this page:

    http://demos.hacks.mozilla.org/openweb/HWACCEL/

    On reddit some folks with intels reported 30 fps

    maybe something is wrong with my xorg - i use the initial one that fglrx sets up and i should enable some option.

    It didnt matter so far to me - but atm it makes sense to have this feature because it makes a big difference when it comes to browsing.
