    I did similar. Sadly Dillo is unmaintained and as you hinted towards: many html documents are using features it doesn't understand now.

    You might like to checkout this: https://www.netsurf-browser.org/

    It has some similarities with Dillo, but it's actively developed & maintained.

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.
    FF 70 is absolutely solid in wayland. There's been a few glitches (fixed) during the beta period, but right now it's working really well. I'm considering switching back to stable from the beta channel as a result.

    Terrific news. It really would be magical if it scrolled totally fluidly as a native Wayland window. Seems like it's within grasp.

    Already built it from the source ZIP a day before the binaries were published.

    No time to test it yet though. Still using FF64 out of laziness and habit.

    Looking forward to other Wayland improvements though, Firefox imho is the best browser for Wayland desktops right now. I've already tried the Chromium Wayland ports and it's very far behind.

    Also looking forward to the official Flatpak packages now that the blocker for those is gone.
    AFAIK the biggest improvements will be with WebGL, video decoding and similar stuff where right now things have to get copied from GPU memory to RAM and back. This is currently the case for WebGL, while for video decoding it didn't make sense until now to bother with decoding on the GPU because of the round trip afterwards. With DMABUF it finally makes sense to utilize GPU video decoding because the result can stay there.

    Too bad I cannot update it on Windows 7 too because of the forced upgrade crap they put in after version 62, which I don't like at all.
    Also their greed for user's data with constant nagging about sync feature makes me not trust Mozilla anymore.
    So, I don't know what to say, I'm wayting for an ungoogled-chromium of Firefox.
