+ - Google Won't Enable Chrome Video Acceleration Over Linux GPU Bugs->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Citing "code we consider to be permanently 'experimental' or 'beta'", Google Chrome engineers have no plans on enabling video acceleration in the Chrome/Chromium web browser. Code has been written but is permanently disabled by default over "supporting GPU features on Linux is a nightmare" due to the reported sub-par quality of Linux GPU drivers and many different Linux distributions. Even coming up with a Linux GPU video acceleration white-list has been shot down over fear of the Linux video acceleration code causing stability issues and problems for Chrome developers. What have been your recent experiences with Linux GPU drivers?"

We are Microsoft. Unix is irrelevant. Openness is futile. Prepare to be assimilated.
