      Why there is no improvement yet?
      Is this mainly because of Firefox not being so great on Wayland?
      Even though Wayland itself is getting production ready, all the apps will need porting to wayland (future).
      That means that even though you're running Wayland natively, X will still need to be 'emulated' under Wayland to run any X-only app.
      The fact that there is barely any increase runing Wayland under these conditions is a very good sign.

        I'm not sure how much I trust it cuz it sounds a bit too good to be true... And that happens to be a copy-paste almost verbatim of this article which is sus af.
