    There also have been a ton of Wayland improvements. On Fedora 31 it's even enabled by default (although only for the Gnome Shell), so I see good chances to get flipped on for everyone by 72-73. If then Webrender finally rides the trains (it's on nightly already for a while) we should be be in good shape, eventually. Note that there's experimental DMABUF support in the Wayland backend. Together with Webrender it brings hardware video acceleration into stone throwing distance.

      This version is using kinetic/momentum scrolling of GTK 3 if you’re using a trackpad (at least on Arch). That makes a tremendous difference! Together with WebRender improvements, we now have macOS-class buttery soft scrolling. If it doesn’t work for you, you have to enable hardware acceleration and MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1, see here: https://www.frumble.de/blog/2017/03/...beschleunigung (in German, but you can use a translation service).

          When will the Wayland implementation sync to native refresh rate instead of stuttery fixed 60fps?

              I loved this update. I don't know why but it feels so smooth. I already had WebRender. Probably.

                  Whoa! Yeah, any day now

                  ... It is not even funny how far behind the browser video viewing experience currently is on Linux. It is grotesque that it was actually better in the old, horrid Flash days, as the Flash plugin at least had support for HW acceleration
