    Beware, they've disabled hardware video decode acceleration; they also don't have an option to turn off these annoying Tab Hover Cards anymore.

            I have already been building and using Chromium v92 for a month.

                Faster and more accurate keylogging too, I'm sure. Apple is probably furious - they are losing the keylogger race to google and MS.

                  I don't react about these things usually but this sentence is misleading: "Google has released Chrome 91 as a rather exciting feature update to their open-source, cross-platform web browser".
                  Chromium is the open-source part but Chrome a proprietary web browser, you cannot build it! I think this should be fixed for the few that don't know.

                    The flag has been removed but you can still activate and use video hardware acceleration via this switch : -enable-features=VaapiVideoDecoder , and it's working very well , play a video format which your hardware has decoding support on YouTube or any other , and navigate to media tab on DevTools , you will see : Hardware Decoder : True.
                    They have changed video hardware decoding implementation in every release since version 88 , from mojodecoder to anoters , and now it is VDAvideodecoder which seems to be the new implementation of a video decoder running on GPU
                    You can track the new decoder here : https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium...tail?id=522298
