    I enabled it but haven't noticed any differences, even in benchmarks. Mesa 19.1 from an Ubuntu PPA.

      Why no AMD? It works fine for me on radeonsi.

        It's about performance. WebRender on 4K screen with Intel card is not going to bring you many performance improvements.

          Well.. after years of loyalty toward Firefox, I might be using Brave now.

          In my new company, they are very Microsoft oriented and they use a lot of Microsoft specific features like proxy setup, Active Directory and NTLM for automatic authentification with Windows credentials.

          I've tested with Firefox, Chrome, Edge (before webkit), and Brave and ALL except Firefox work out-of-the-box with the network setup in my company. I don't know the reason why Firefox devs don't want to support that in a proper manner, but there are issues opened for years now and apparently they just don't care.

          But the thing is, I don't have the choice at work, and I don't want to have to switch between different browsers between my work and my home... so I'm testing Brave, which checks a lot of boxes (open source and privacy protection oriented), and for now I find it pretty nice!

          When Firefox will reach 2% market shares or less, maybe they'll try to align with the competition

            It's usable depending on your hardware. E.g., if you don't care about auto rotation and even manual portrait rotation working, or don't care about clipboard history, or use only one monitor, or don't care about the touchscreen always working, then it should be fine. I love KDE but have a laptop with a touchscreen and an external display, so the wayland session wasn't usable for me.

              Nah, Just enable scripts for current domain and then it's a matter of enabling a couple others for certain sites

                Heh. That's one of the tweaks ones I listed in the last Firefox thread.

                Here's a nice list of all the crap I've changed, or added, in Firefox straight from my prefs.js.

                Code:
                user_pref("dom.webgpu.enable", true);
                user_pref("general.smoothScroll.msdPhysics.enabled", true);
                user_pref("general.warnOnAboutConfig", false);
                user_pref("gfx.canvas.azure.accelerated", true);
                user_pref("gfx.offscreencanvas.enabled", true);
                user_pref("gfx.use_text_smoothing_setting", true);
                user_pref("gfx.webrender.all", true);
                user_pref("gfx.webrender.enabled", true);
                user_pref("gfx.xrender.enabled", true);
                user_pref("gl.msaa-level", 4);
                user_pref("layers.acceleration.force-enabled", true);
                user_pref("layers.enable-tiles", true);
                user_pref("layers.progressive-paint", true);
                user_pref("layout.animated-image-layers.enabled", true);
                user_pref("layout.css.osx-font-smoothing.enabled", true);
                user_pref("layout.display-list.retain.chrome", true);
                user_pref("media.av1.enabled", true);
                user_pref("media.av1.use-dav1d", true);
                user_pref("media.eme.enabled", true);
                user_pref("media.ffmpeg.low-latency.enabled", true);
                user_pref("media.gpu-process-decoder", true);
                user_pref("media.hardware-video-decoding.force-enabled", true);
                user_pref("media.media-capabilities.screen.enabled", true);
                user_pref("media.mediasource.experimental.enabled", true);
                user_pref("media.peerconnection.sdp.rust.compare", true);
                user_pref("media.peerconnection.sdp.rust.enabled", true);
                user_pref("network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server", 10);
                user_pref("webgl.force-enabled", true);
                user_pref("webgl.msaa-force", true);

                  All I know is I can't stand the internet without NoScript...well, uMatrix now...just too much autoplay, flashing ads, pop up & unders, & crap in general.

                    I wonder if anyone was able to get Firefox just idle and do nothing? For me it always do something according to top, CPU usage by Firefox process spike every now and then. That with latest stable and today Nightly, both with clean fresh profile.

                      It's currently using .25% of my CPU and 286mb of ram with just the Manjaro homepage and this thread open. Holding the scrollbar and moving my mouse up and down very fast makes it go up a massive 2%. No screen tearing or any lag whatsoever.

                      Added a third tab: went to Netflix and started watching Our Planet @ 1080p high quality. That caused the memory to go up to 396mb and the CPU spiked to 5% usage for a split second when the video first loaded.

                      EDIT: Keep in mind that if you're on any website that uses any form of scripting then it's very unlikely to get Firefox or any web browser into a completely idle state. Using minimal CPU with minimal spikes is what I consider to be idle and doing nothing if I'm reading threads due to how much crap is needed for basic functionality on some websites.
