Most dramatic in this testing was the MotionMark performance out of Firefox 68.0 Beta when enabling WebRender... For this benchmark it's a night and day difference performance-wise.

Also benefiting but much less with WebRender on Firefox 68 was the Basemark benchmark, which is about 3% faster.

The ARES-6 performance improved in Firefox 67 but is flat with Firefox 68 Beta. Of course, WebRender principally benefits the DOM/graphics tests and for the JavaScript benchmarks won't mean much unless any peculiarities in the code path.

The aging Octane benchmark saw a regression in Firefox 67.0 but is recovering somewhat in the Firefox 68.0 Beta.
