Since updating to Google Chrome 85.0.4183.83 (Official build) on my Ubuntu 20.04.1 machine, Chrome is exhibiting some weird flickering. Especially in the top left corner, chunks of pixels are showing on keyboard input or mouse movements. The following GIF I just recorded on this page while typing this question.
Is there any permanent fix for this behavior? It seems that disabling hardware acceleration in the settings is a workaround for this.
I couldn't find any bug reports on their issue tracker.
