Neither firefox nor chromium have hardware acceleration enabled by default right now. Firefox 4 has an option its registry to force it:
layers.acceleration.force.enabled , which is by default set to false.
Having passed all but 3 of 800 tests run by the grafx bot, I thought it reasonable to set the above registry entry to true. However I get a terrible score in the FPS test at the mozilla hardware acceleration stress test. But it doesn't seem to give any problems in normal usage.
Similarly gpu acceleration can be enabled in Chromium 10 by navigating to about:flags and checking the option. So, should I enable it or not?
