    No, I could not. At the least you would have to build chromium yourself with the right options, and I could not.
    Code:
    $ xlsclients | grep chrome
    This should give nothing. If yes, chrome runs in Xwayland.

    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

    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

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