    The API docs seem to be outdated. There are:
    cairo_glx_device_create() and cairo_gl_surface_create() methods in the source code.

    and I found this using them: Performance OpenGL backend

    I can't find anything on GTK

    Cairo isn't really used by WebKit. Apple, Google and Nokia do not use Cairo for their port at least.

    I just upgraded to it, and enabled the OpenGL backend. This results in Firefox being slow as molasses...

    I am not impressed.

    OK, I take that back; it seems Firefox enters slow motion mode with Cairo 1.10 regardless of the chosen backend. Reverting to Cairo 1.8...

    Wayland has used Cairo internally from the beginning. So yes, it still does work with Wayland.
