      "improved video performance for systems with SSSE3 CPU support while lacking hardware acceleration"

      Does this mean it improves video performance on platforms without video decoding acceleration (like on linux were firefox still does not support vaapi/vdpau/openmax) or only when layers acceleration is turned off?

        Wow, finally support for <details> and <summary>, about time! Chrome has supported this since forever.

        But where is support for input type=date, time, datetime, etc. Both Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge support this.

        Btw, will Firefox support ORTC? It is needed for web Skype.

          ORTC is an Edge-only contraption, afaik. Browsers should probably ignore it altogether.

                  It did that the first time for me on windows as well. It has to download the support from google directly. So leave your browser open, then restart it later and try again.

                    It works great with Twich. Disable flash completely to load the HTML5 interface, unless you're selected for the beta and can do it anyway.
