        Lower WebRender CPU usage please, my Thinkpad T430S turns into space heater when using youtube even though I use hardware decoding and force H264 playback with h264ify.

          How you can use hardware decoding if Firefox on Linux still not support it? Or maybe you taking on layers?

            Eh i hope this is supposed to be funny because it makes no sense.

              That's nice but still no hardware acceleration.

                Linux / GNU etc. are totally dead projects. You can not hope for a bunch of long haired hippies to create anything useful, especially if you are competing with Microsoft and Apple 🙄

                Apart from the not-yet-existing hardware decoding on Linux, the Webrender issue for this is AFAIK https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1579235

                  Your analogy is totally incorrect.

                    I just compiled v72 and tried Picture-In-Picture on a few YouTube and Prime videos and it worked fine. I don't have a Netflix streaming account anymore, just DVD/Blu-ray, so I don't know about that.

                    But even though it works, it seems to be of limited usefulness right now. It has to stay on top, and if you browse from the launch point in the browser it disconnects.

                    I expect with more work they'll make it a fully floating window that can be anywhere on any level, and stay connected when browsing to other pages. Then it will be awesome!
