    Phoronix: Chrome 93 Beta Brings Multi-Screen Window Placement API, CSD-Like Overlay Option

    Chrome in CSD mode still has low-quality non-antialiased rounded corners (at least under X11).

      Frequently have problems with, desired, pop ups being placed mostly off screen. Moving a pop up window doe not hold for the next one, which still opens mostly off screen.. have followed many googled so called “fixes” but those do not work from pop up to pop up or session to session.
      does this “placement” api have any kind of user configuration to “place” a pop up from a website in a particular location so that EVERY pop up from the site will open in the same, user desired, screen location?

        It's fixed in Chromium 94 (nightly)

          That's technically a Window Manager bug. Any change made in the application may or may not have an effect, depending on whether the WM chooses to ignore placement requests.

          (And I'm not sure how much control over that sort of thing Wayland allows, given that Wayland is about protecting against things like the shaped window attack which prompted mandatory extension signing in Firefox, which was used by a download manager to trick Firefox users into thinking Firefox itself was guiding them through granting permission to the download manager's auto-installed extension. Wayland pushes a lot of that sort of thing into protocol-level "this is impossible, so applications can't come to rely on it existing and break when we secure things" reactions to why the X11 SECURITY extension flopped.)

            on what DE? what WM? xfce has an option to open all windows centered for example

            things are probably further complicated if you use more than one monitor or workspace, maybe even if you use a display scaling that's not 1x

            which websites, what kind of popups? are they different from right clicking a link>open in new window? do other browsers do this?
