    Anyone who cant percieve 0.1 seconds ..... is a bit slow mentally... you should even be able to make a complete sound in 0.1 seconds.

    I see in the screenshot that your azure backend is not accelerated. That's also due to some rather weird GPU blacklisting. Set these keys in about:config:

    Code:
    layers.acceleration.force-enabled true
    gfx.content.azure.accelerated true
    gfx.canvas.azure.accelerated true
    Without it, benchmarking is rather pointless.

    Firefox Linux releases should really stop this sweeping blacklisting and should enable all this by default. Drivers situation today is very different from five years ago.
    is this for nightly? my about config only has
    gfx.canvas.azure.backends skia
    gfx.content.azure.backends skia

    as options

    You could use apulse emulation for Firefox (already packaged in Debian repo) and get on with your life.
    Or you could keep on trolling Phoronix with the same, tired rhetoric for years on end.

    Hmmm. I wonder which one you'll choose.

    Yeah I've been running with all this enabled for like a year now on intel graphics with no issues. It's really annoying that AT THE VERY LEAST they haven't enabled hardware compositing by default

    Damn, it is noticeable in daily use but I still didn't think Blink is that much faster. Those graphs are insane.

    Wierd, I'm getting better scores than nightly+webrender on stable Firefox 63 despite using lesser hardware AND mining on my GPU at the same time.

    When I compared Firefox/Chromium/Epiphany last year, the fastest was actually Epiphany although it did have some visual glitches. Focusing development on Linux and not having to support Windows does seem to pay off.

    Not in a million years as long as Firefox keeps making it harder-and-harder to have sound without Pulseaudio. Maybe if they started supporting Alsa and Jack agian.

    Never said there's anything wrong with earning money. There's definitely something wrong with the amount any one entity such as google can earn without redistributing those earnings in a fair and just manner.

    Ok sure, so I should have made the difference out to be, not between an open and non-open source project, but between a not-for-profit org. like mozilla and a money-grabbing org. like google.

    The article refers to Chrome but it would be the exact same thing with Chromium which is an open source project!
