      The most interesting fix is this one: Chromium now respects your monitor's refresh rate.

      For some reason it was not mentioned in the changelog.

        Nice find, thanks! I always check the flags after updates (I was on 79 for a while now because vivaldi-snapshot is always one step ahead), but I hadn't seen this one yet. Enabled it now, let's see how it goes!

          So far I have had no problems, among other things it seems more reactive, but it can only be an impression.
