It works for the Canary build too but doesnt fare so well for most of the tests, hopefully they will improve its performance quite a bit before it goes live, its got potential but its a bit disappointing at the moment.
Well it sounded like a good idea at first, then I got closer to the end of the article. Knowing Google they'll churn out a spectacular product by the time they are done.
Now if they can just get a Chrome browser on my Android. (Or if I can get a Firefox, Fennec, that doesn't just FC)

This can allready be tested without the need of browser GPU acceleration. All of the popular facebook games utilise Adobe Flash as the prefered platform and as of release 10.4 flash has GPU render support ect. When i run firefox using flash ect a seperate executable runs handling the flash via GPU.

Lots of software companies want to move away from the desktop software model into a more web based software model because they see it as easier and cheaper.
[citation][nom]otacon72[/nom]Microsoft Internet Explorer 60.01% Firefox 24.24% Chrome 7.00% Safari 4.78% Opera 2.33% ...yeah....we can stop talking about Chrome now. It will never come close to FF let alone IE. If you know how to setup your browser properly you don't need GPU "acceleration". Just a bunch of BS anyway.[/citation]
i bet that thats not the same as the %'s on this site. 60% of the worl use IE because its pre-installed and they know no better, chrome is so young yet already has 7% share, no other browser has a higher adoption rate so ofcourse its going to be covered. I bet theres loads of people on this site that use chrome to browse
I love chrome since I installed it I ditched firefox (Used it for years) , it got too slow and crappy on time. About IE, well, what can I say , 60% of the people is simply retarded and doesnt care, the ones who pay a bit of attention or like a bit to have good things will switch immediatly.
