    But have they enabled video hardware acceleration by default now?
    Not yet, but enabling it manually is no longer broken.
    Wayland
    Not yet.
    and Webrender
    Seems to be enabled by default for me here.
    is is enabled by default now?
    Or do we still have to enable all manually?
    The update to it is not available yet to test it myself.

    No, not instead of. Mozilla has invested many years of engineering work into reducing memory consumption of Firefox. They can do both.
    It still uses a ridiculous amount of RAM per tab, though.

    There is an issue for that, and I follow it at
    https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1739611
    in the case you didn't know it already. Let's hope for a fix.

    Phoronix fails to report the facts once again. Better behavior when Firefox / OS is running out of memory is not a performance improvement in most cases nor for very many people. We don't run out of memory on a daily basis. It is also not a significant improvement especially when it isn't backed up with benchmarks.

    Brilliant!
    Firefox used to be pretty good wrt memory management. Back then, people were bashing it for not following Chrome and run a JS interpreter per tab. Well, today it does. And people bash it for running a JS interpreter per tab and chewing through RAM, just as fast as Chrome does.

    Firefox is both the egg and the chicken. The low memory situation is caused by itself :P The amount of memory it uses per tab is ridiculous.
