    Phoronix: Firefox Wayland By Default Diverted To Fedora 31

    The plans to ship the Wayland-ized Firefox by default in Fedora 30 have been thwarted and will now have to wait until Fedora 31 to try again...

      It is not just Firefox, Thunderbird and LibreOffice suite also need to support Wayland. In other words give it another 5 years.

        I ask those who have expertise in the matter, it's so complicated to bring an application from Xorg to native Wayland ?

          GTK3 VCL of LO works well as native Wayland window for quite some time now.

              If it continues at this pace, when Wayland will finally be default on most GNU/Linux systems without having to rely on XWayland for commons apps, Wayland will be as old as X11 was when Wayland's development started! (and, maybe, will be considered obsolete)

                slightly OT:
                shouldn't Gnome Web be the default browser on the default Gnome Desktop distro?
                If not, why wasting programming force?

                  Not surprising. When this was first announced I mentioned that the bug tracker was still full of bugs blocking wayland (40+). It remains full of bugs.

                  I don't think announcing you want to do something is magically going to get all the roadblocks to disappear.

                    Red Hat has a developer who has been working on porting Firefox to GTK3 and Wayland. Noone is expecting bugs to get magically fixed.
