    Wayland has used Cairo internally from the beginning. So yes, it still does work with Wayland.

    OK, I take that back; it seems Firefox enters slow motion mode with Cairo 1.10 regardless of the chosen backend. Reverting to Cairo 1.8...

    I just upgraded to it, and enabled the OpenGL backend. This results in Firefox being slow as molasses...

    I am not impressed.

    Cairo isn't really used by WebKit. Apple, Google and Nokia do not use Cairo for their port at least.

    The API docs seem to be outdated. There are:
    cairo_glx_device_create() and cairo_gl_surface_create() methods in the source code.

    and I found this using them: Performance OpenGL backend

    I can't find anything on GTK
