    Phoronix: Chromium Ported To Wayland, Now Working

    Good Wayland news keeps coming! One day after GNOME 3.10 got aligned for good Wayland support, Intel has announced Ozone-Wayland as a way in which the Chromium web-browser now works on Wayland. Besides Chrome, the Content Shell works on Wayland too...

    Chrome already flies. And with the upcoming switch to Google's Aura window system and Wayland support coming, it will only get faster and faster.

    Some more info about Ozone can be found here: http://www.chromium.org/developers/d...ocuments/ozone - also mentions Google is working with Intel on this, so it's not just a hobby project from some Intel guy. Also, Google wants to make it easy to support other platforms like Mir.

    We don't really need more fragmentation. For the good of Linux I hope MIR dies.

    Google uses a customized variant of Ubuntu internally for their office PCs so it's no surprise that Mir will be supported.

    My ultimate hope is that both Google & Canonical see the benefits of unifying efforts behind a platform-agnostic display server, and eventually port their systems over to Wayland.. that may not be too realistic, but a man can hope.

    It's pretty amazing to see Wayland coming together after following its developement for over two years... I wonder if the PPAPI Flash Player works with this and if Chrome OS is going to adapt Wayland in the future (it could help with ARM graphics support).

    I understand canonical wanting to naturally focus on their distro, but all the resources being wasted on mir that's meant for ubuntu could be used on wayland that improves the entire linux community.

    Google would be stupid not to adopt Wayland as their underlying display server for Chrome OS. And I don't believe anyone at Google is dumb.

    Awesome, now we'll have a major browser running natively on Wayland when the DE's with Wayland support are first shipped.

    Firefox support is under the way.
    It is in progress of being ported to Gtk 3.
