    Perhaps it would appear in the next Google Chrome release.

        I doubt that, because my guess is that it's being built on Debian stable, which doesn't have a recent enough version of Wayland.

              replacing something that is broken, like x, is often a lot of work for very much gain

                i presume you mean x compatible. x compatible is x, and it is broken. if you could fix x, you wouldn't need wayland. you only need 2 branches if you are using x directly, but then it is your own problem. use x via toolkit and you will not need 2 branches, toolkit will handle it

                  no program is feature complete ever
                  if it has not enough features for you, then you do not use it yet
                  it has enough features to be used by production smartphones and cars
                  it has enough features to run gnome login screen in production distros
                  soon it will have enough features to run full gnome session
                  idiots could still build their custom x server
