        No, Phillips Hue doesn't have anything to do with this ;-)

          It is a "laugh" expression.

            That's a good reason for me to try it out.

                And the best one, the one designated to "zoeira" in Brazil, the "for the lulz" laugh

                    With this beta it should also be possible to run Firefox Nightly (w/o webrender/acceleration, since there are still several breaking bugs in combination) directly on Wayland/sway via `GDK_BACKEND=wayland /path/to/firefox`. Apart from occasional display issues (menu rendering, resizing, HiDPI - the typical pain points) and some integration bugs (e.g. external links opening an XWayland instance of the browser) the experience is quite stable.
