    I think that's the intention, since it allows direct rendering to GPUs and sharing the HW buffer across processes. Basically you're avoiding a lot of memory copy processes, freeing up ressources.

    Speaking about wayland, mpv just landed major wayland improvements.

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.

    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.

    But the firefox that supports it ahs been anounced ( as well as Chrome).

    I tried latest verison of bothj on the test page:




    And it still reports access through TCP4 rather than UDP.

    I'd like to have good client tool for testing...

    Still, by far, my favourite browser (followed by Dillo... not even kidding :P ).

    This releases assists with password generations if you right-click on a password field or if it has the attribute autocomplete="new-password". Very nice! 👍

    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
