Aye, but on Mac, Firefox doesn't fully hardware accelerate the draw operations.

Did find this quote from Opera though which probably explains their stance: http://my.opera.com/...-acceleration-2


Ahh, that explains things a bit better. They're writing their own 2D drawing API like Direct2D, but one that uses OpenGL underneath. I know Mozilla have similar plans, but that's a long way off (although some of their current drawing work is a precursor)

It'll be interesting to see what Opera can achieve, performance and capability wise (e.g. Direct2D is missing a few things you need for 100% GPU accelerated <canvas>, IE9 simply ignored those bits while Mozilla implemented them via OpenGL/Direct3D blending)

Tell google to follow HTML standards on their websites and stop intentionally sending bad code to certain browsers

Sometimes setting opera to mask itself as firefox helps with these issues :)
