What is it expected to improve? If i understand it correctly this is used to cache the most used CSS gradients, so will this improve the rendering speed of the content and UI as well?

Apparently Firefox still uses gradients in their UI. /s
Still has years to go.

It means that the browser doesn't have to re-render a gradient when its used again. Websites that use css gradients should see improved rendering and performance when scrolling.

Thanks for the explanation, there has also been some activity on DLBI lately. I really hope that they'll manage to fix it in time for FF18 since a lot of the performance / snappy bugs should be fixed by it.

How's Firefox perfoming for you on this Canvas performance test?
Compare it with IE9 and Chrome.

Yeah, about half of those patches have landed with the rest on the way. The only reason why it hasn't landed fully yet is because of a 5% painting regression in some cases. I think they're trying to find a way to mitigate that until OMTC lands.

IE9 doesn't work, complains that a script is sent with the wrong mime-type. Chromium Canary and Nightly are identical in performance, locked at 60 FPS. I forked it and enlarged the canvas, and also increased the number of particles to 5000.

http://jsdo.it/ferongr/aCF7/fullscreen

Over here Nightly stays at roughly 30FPS, while Chromium Canary is at 18-20FPS.

Firefox has pauses on that test even though IGC is enabled.

Yeah, I've noticed that. Should we file a bug, or should we wait for GGC? :P

Thanks ferongr. :)

Why would it be a good news that Azure is bad?
