    Phoronix: Google Open-Sources "GraphicsFuzz" For Helping To Spot GPU Driver Bugs

    Remember GraphicsFuzz? That was the effort started by university students for fuzzing GPU drivers via WebGL in the browser and over the course of their research found various OpenGL driver bugs, including for mobile drivers. Last month the start-up born out of that university research was acquired by Google and now their work is open-source...

          I am interested in a comparison between the found bugs in team red and team green on linux

            I think it would be interesting to apply this to glslang by somehow trying to determine equivalence in SPIR-V or parse tree outputs; That might be too much of a mess though.

                  Maybe this is why they didn't want to open it?

                  (they say Java is a bad language)

                    They didn't want to open it because they wanted to get paid for their (useful) effort. Which is imho fair as you can't eat "freedom".

                    Now they get paid and their employer opensourced it.
