Hi,

IE 9 and FF 3.7 release will support hardware acceleration and i think HA is a step to faster browsing experience. Any idea when its coming to Chrome?
I googled and found no sigh of it. what is stopping Google from adding this support in chrome 6 build?? If it can be enabled in chrome tell me how to do it?

Time to switch browsers, not wait for Chrome to catch up. :)

The multi-process architecture makes it harder to implement (although not impossible), and they're probably working on more important things.

Look at NaCl, it already allows GPU access from within the sandbox. Its just a matter of adapting that to Chrome. But first I think they will wait for ANGLE (a DirectX backend to WebGL) to mature.

How do you know they implemented it with ease? Microsoft aren't exactly open about their development work (and the IE 9 preview is a single process)

Well if they're using Direct2D (What I assume this thread is about since that's what IE9 and Firefox 4 are using), then ANGLE won't come into it.

There's nothing stopping it from happening, they just have to actually do it.

I don't think that was properly written so I don't fully understand what you are trying to tell me there.


Many people switch to the faster browser.
In as such, those that switched to Chrome/Opera (as other browsers are playing catch-up in terms of speed) might switch to IE9/FF if with D2D they beat Chrome.

In as much, if with D2D you FF and IE would become faster, it should be logical to switch browsers. (I would avoid them atm as they are in early stages of development)

Direct2D and DirectWrite I believe might be getting implemented in Chrome 6 via dev channel, or more possibly on Chrome 7. There was an article about it a few weeks ago.

Why wouldn't you expect others to hate something just because you do?

Just look at how many people fell in love with Firefox, just because everyone else said it was cool, and now all those people are jumping ship, just because........

DirectWrite is a much bigger deal for me than Direct2D, so it'll be awesome if Chrome gets it (And at the same time I'd like to see Safari get it as a replacement for it's GDI rendering code)
