    Recently Electron 2.0 got released with GTK3 support, however Wayland is not yet supported.
    Electron is what powers Atom, Skype, Spotify, Visual Studio Code, SQL Operations Studio, etc.

    Firefox, GIMP, and Chromium does not yet support Wayland either.
    Firefox now have wayland support. It works out of the box on fedora. My only problem with it is the high dpi scaling is bugging with wayland, with Xwayland scaling works. Without scaling it works in pure wayland mode.

    This kind of kills the arguement that wayland compositors have to do SSD for X11. Yes we are going to have wayland compositors that don't support X11 at all.

    Phoronix: GNOME 3.30 Mutter Relieves Wayland Code From Depending Upon X11/XWayland

    While GNOME's Wayland support has been in great shape with the Mutter compositor, it has depended upon X11/XWayland code even when starting with pure Wayland support. That's now changing and there is also now the optional "--no-x11" flag for starting the compositor without X11 support...
