      I did. It helps with CPU usage, but it's still a little buggy. If you want to test it, note that it's only enabled for H.264. Watch this issue for the more common (on YouTube) VP9.

        And it has a Flat, nice. As someone tired of playing Pocket Pull every time I update Firefox or install an OS, that'll be a welcomed addition to my system if it works with DRM content.

          Wonder how long they will be playing the privacy card while not improving anything else... hint: is hurting them...

          those who would give up essential privacy to purchase a little temporary performance
          deserve neither privacy not performance

            I would submit that this is likely very skewed in Chrome's favor due it being the defacto browser on Android. Same thing that racked up market share for IE. It was part of the OS so it typically handled web traffic.

              That is only partially true IMHO. At work (university) it is a real rarity to see someone using Firefox. It would give the impression that Chrome have even more market share than that graphic shows.

                I work for a university as well and all machines under my control run Firefox. Some faculty request Chrome but machines not under my control have both FF and Chrome for faculty. I have extremely granular control over FF (group policies and lockdown config file) which I cannot do with Chrome. Of course, I always tell people who want Chrome to just use Portable Chrome from their USB drives and they're fine with it. It's a matter of personal preference. I don't take the benchmarks too seriously.

                  I also install Firefox in all machines that pass my table, but some people simply are addicted to Chrome like in the days of IE6... so whatever. The alternative is there if they feel the necessity to use it.

                  A couple months ago I even saw a student to actually search the start menu for IE11 (I always remove it from task bar... don't ask). Sometimes you just have to let it go.

                    Ditto.

                      For me, Firefox is quite fast enough. I run it with NoScript and keep most of the advertising from running. Most things, even heavy Javascript apps, respond instantly. Or fast enough that I don't notice the delay.

                      What do I care if Chrome can finish a benchmark slightly faster? I can't tell the difference.
