      Benchmarks? Impressions? Flicker-free videos?

        Finally! Now I hope they do the same for thunderbird, so that I can finally say goodbye to xwayland.

            Still totally unusable with KWin (stutter, crashes...).
            Can only be a matter of years...

                The Wayland version of Firefox has already been available for a while in https://firefox-flatpak.mojefedora.cz/
                If you use Ubuntu, you can get the nightly from a ppa:

                Code:
                sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
                sudo apt install firefox-trunk
                Though I think that the ppa version doesn't support Wayland yet.

                  Sweet!
                  This makes it much easier for testing.

                  The Wayland metabug entry in the bugzilla that tracks all Wayland-related issues.

                    Although I prefer Chrome for my laptop (I do use FF on my desktop) I might seriously consider using FF for my laptop whenever Wayland support is officially released. I'm not ditching Chrome for nightly builds of FF.
