Chrome 87 Dev Builds Trying Again With X11+Wayland Ozone Enabled
As of the Chrome/Chromium 87.0.4252.0 dev build, the support has been relanded for using X11 and Ozone and fixes Vulkan tests on Linux with the Skia renderer as well as ANGLE tests on Linux Ozone.
The state of the Ozone platform support continues to be tracked via this bug report.
The Phoronix reader who wrote in commenting on the Chrome 87 addition commented on his experience, "I only played with it a little but I'm guessing this won't ship soon in the stable builds, it's not bug-free and it's missing hardware video acceleration and IME frameworks support (e.g. Fcitx, IBus)."
