    Yes, I did test Webrender only on XWayland. If I start on Plasma-Wayland 5.12 beta the flatpak version of FirefoxNightlyWayland I have no input and I get only a white page, though the GUI elements are rendered.

        We're working on it: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=350688

          Well, it means they didn't move it to Wayland proper with Webrender yet or at least it's not ready so far.

            We'd be half way there already (could be easily integrated into a Webextension) if my API proposal (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1314076) wasn't hitting some rough patches.

            Admittedly, their way would work too but takes more time and know-how to implement (including, apparently, bindings to Rust) and then you'd be left with an ugly Web API that you'd have to build abstractions around anyways and that requires additional failure tests (seriously. Why are Web API event types implemented as strings? That's a flexible but, albeit, horrible choice).

              All the time... I get confused when I am on windows and can't do it...

                I use mouse button 3 (it's not a middle button on my trackball) to open browser links in new tabs. Keyboard is still quicker for me.

                  phoronix Michael, you may want to update the article. As was commented on the referenced bug today, the target milestone is for rough functionality, not shipping.

                    As someone else said, I think middle-mouse paste super useful because it enables to copy two strings of texts. One through CTRL C and the other through middle mouse button. Also it can be achieve with just one hand (you need two otherwise, one for the mouse, the other one for the keyboard).

                      So many comments about the middle mouse button for pasting. I couldn't care less, if Firefox will ship now with Wayland support :-)
