    Firefox has had a bfcache practically forever, but it's disabled on a large fraction of websites because Mozilla made the unfortunate decision to respect the webdev's "cache-control: no-store" header more than the user's time and DOM state. And even that's an improvement from before, when it was disabled on all https:// pages.

    So a whole lot of people have been trained to middle click everything anyway, because the back button often has huge UI latency and possible loss of form contents or lazy-loaded page elements.

      Doesn't Chrome use enough RAM already? On second thoughts, this feature is probably worth the extra memory cost.

        Native wayland support looks good now, I've been using it for days on Plasma wayland and so far I haven't had any problems.

          Hardware acceleration for video now also works under native wayland. Obviously the flag is needed :
          --enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland --enable-features=VaapiVideoDecoder
