Ok, so the WebGL conversations are bleeding into the other Hardware Acceleration threads. Its time that it got its own thread.

I seem to be getting quite a low frame rate with that animation, as it's a little 'jerky'. Whe I tried the Mozilla 'Stress test' http://demos.hacks.mozilla.org/openweb/HWACCEL/ I get 90 to 100 fps. Am I confusing apples with oranges?

Even after this landed I still don't see ANGLE in about:support - graphics section I would have sworn it was there before, but grabbing some earlier builds its not there either. Color me 'confused'.

The flight of the Navigator uses a 3D WebGL canvas while the HWACCEL uses a 2D canvas (possibly accelerated by Direct2D/XRender).

The "pauses" in the WebGL demo is due to the garbage collector, they are looking to improve this after Firefox 4.

I got (5236 of 5371 passed, 2 timed out) on the test. Originally I got three timeouts. But one of them didn't timeout when I ran it again manually.

On ubuntu not surprusingly it crached the browser with kernel 2.6.38 and latest radeon driver. Although it seems its a lot less crashy on the khronos demos than before. Webgl earth still crashes xserver...

I'll say it again, but hopefully won't become boring...

In my case, 2 times I saw there "Nvidia" and not "Angle." First time was when I installed a completely clean copy of FF with new profile. Second was 3 days ago when ANGLE updated. The next first two days in both cases, "Nvidia" was written there... Became "ANGLE" without to do anything... At least, I mean that didn't do any specific changes... It remains mystery but now as you can see bellow, I got normal informations:

Code: Select all
Adapter Description          NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460
Vendor ID                    10de

Anyone else got the same issue? Has been solved the mystery?

I have seen this also a few times after updating my NVIDIA drivers, it may be this bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=630019

Edit: false alarm, it's okay after restarting Firefox.
