I recently updated Ubuntu from 15.10 to 16.04 and right after, I started noticing tears in viewing webpages in chromium (and nowhere else).

I tried googling the problem but couldn't find anything.

The problem stays even after rebooting.

Seems like ticking the Use hardware acceleration when available option in the advanced settings in chromium fixed this problem.

I still don't know why it started only after upgrading to 16.04 though.
