The work-in-progress code for Firefox with VA-API acceleration on Wayland can be found via this Mozilla bug report. The focus is on Intel video acceleration with VA-API but ultimately should end up working ideally with other VA-API driver implementations too. Hopefully this work will see the light of day in upstream Firefox soon. 55 Comments
Firefox will likely be more energy-efficient in video playback on Linux with Wayland than Chromium (and its friends). There are two ways to do video decoding (conversion of compressed video stream downloaded from internet into pixels displayed on the screen): in software on general-purpose hardware and in dedicated hardware. Software decoding uses general-purpose hardware and can be slower and more battery-draining than dedicated hardware developed exactly for this task.
Nov 13, 2010 · Now the Hardware acceleration option is still ticked on from the options menu, but the font is normal now with the direct2d string set to True. But I don't see anything else that was set differently from either having Hardware acceleration setting On or Off. For example the gfx.3d_video.enabled is still set to False with HA on or off.
Another hardware acceleration strategy is in-memory processing, an architecture that places multiple processors as close as possible to memory arrays. com and founded the site in 2004 with a focus on enriching the Linux hardware experience. I understand that Intel has released an Intel hardware accelerated execution manager.

Why isnt firefox not hardware accelerated? The first screenshot shows chrome at 23% usage. Firefox 4 disables hardware acceleration for certain graphics chipsets they feel are unreliable. To check from within Firefox whether GPU acceleration is enabled, type in about:support in your...
And chrome Firefox supported GPU hardware acceleration, but ie9 didn't. Well first of all, all three support GPU acceleration on the W520 with the 2000M. So something else is causing problems.
