    Unless it's improved in recent weeks, Chrome's Wayland support is still really bad.

    Although I could run Qt applications using native Wayland, I still use Xwayland to get middle-click paste support.

    Code:
    export QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb

    Yes, it went to your usual mindless GNOME fanboy posting, full of lies. But thanks for being 100% predictable and not throwing us any curveballs.

    Also a lot of Java apps. Quite a few IDEs written in Java out there (Eclipse, Jetbrains, etc). This matters because a lot of linux desktop users are software development types.

    Spike29 Olivier’s stray patches months ago doesn’t count much. I wish he did more on that GTK desktop. It’s second most important desktop after all..
    I'm pretty sure it's GNOME - KDE Plasma - Xfce in terms of popularity...

    R41N3R Then you are going to wait on the GNOMErs to fix and release. Alternatively you can go back to your favorite desktop and ask them to apply 5 full time employees with same skills and experience as the GNOME ones. Good luck with that.
    And the boring comments continue...
