Hello.

I was worked firefox builds on x86. Firefox have very large customization options. I was like this.

Now ı'm a raspberry pi user. I'm curious about firefox layer hw acceleration with pi. Pi1 with its 512mb gpu shared memory not enough for firefox. But pi2 is more enough.

Now. Iceweasel (firefox) only using software rendering on raspbian (debian wheezy build for raspberry).

I need better hw acceleration than software. Pls advice me if there is any possibility.

Secondly. If there is no gpu hardware acceleration possibility. I can use quad core cpu with neon instruductions for software render ?
