Recordings of browsers (Chromium 93, Chromium 90, Firefox 89)

To provide a benchmark/orientation on what to expect in terms of performance of different browsers on MNT Reform, I made the following videos today.

For chromium, the commandline flags in use are --enable-gpu-rasterizer --enable-zero-copy --enable-features=WebUIDarkMode --force-dark-mode --force-device-scale-factor=1.5.

Chromium 90 is from Debian, Chromium 93 is installed via snap but run directly from its install directory, circumventing snap. Firefox 89 is from Debian experimental.

For Firefox, I set layers.acceleration.force-enabled to true. This increases performance somewhat, but causes some glitches on new tabs as visible in the video.

Chromium 93 (using ANGLE, OpenGL ES):

Chromium 90 (using Desktop GL):

Firefox 89 (runs natively on wayland, but doesn’t use GPU effectively for rendering):
