    Finally!

    But we don't want to see it in Servo (which will take long before hitting the market)... We want hardware video acceleration on Quantum...

      Why does typing "Q u a n t u m" get your post unapproved? Has it been used in a Latin lo.ve poem?

      Edit: Guess I should just rewrite the post as I am losing now...

          Exactly my thoughts as well! What comes next, Chromium finally accepting the VA-API patches upstream?!

            Doesn't look like they are plugging into vaapi yet. It's about using OpenGL, like mpv is using OpenGL/Vulkan shaders for scaling and other tasks. I.e. better than before, but far from optimal yet.

              Servo on Windows via ANGLE. Woot!

                At least, it is a start! I couldn't believe it in the first place.

                  At this point servo is an experiment, and it will take quite a while before it has a chance of being useful as a daily driver for browsing. Consider it to be an experiment.

                    Features from Servo like Webrender are copied to Firefox as well, so experiment or not, this can end up being useful a lot sooner than you think.
