If you are running on MacOS you will see a huge decrease of its power usage by a factor of about 3x, e.g when loading web pages! It's all about making use of CoreAnimation for rendering now. There is more to come... So don't forget to get the latest Nightly!

YES! Finally! I've been waiting for this for over a year now. Firefox kept eating my battery so I had to use Safari when on the go and on my workstation only. This may change now ❤️🎉

Note, that all those recent changes should also be in the first Firefox 70 developer edition, which is about to get released later this week; in case you are afraid from using Nightly. So be a little bit more patient over the next days.

And a big thanks definitely goes to who was working on this transition, and is actually still working on more improvements.

Now if there would be a better, more natural scroll behavior (scroll bouncing), you could count me in. As of rn I cannot use this (and I want to switch away from ). So pleeeeeeese 🙄

Thanks Hendrik. I find it kind of depressing. It's been an open ticket for five year by now. Is aiming to fix this in the foreseeable future?

Work is generally scheduled by priority, and impact for users. Some features might have a big relevance for yourself, but overall might not be requested that much. Also I cannot speak for this particular feature, and for the managers / team of this component.

Oh, and if you are that interested in the feature maybe you could consider to help? Usually there are different ways of how you could contribute even if you aren't a coder. I hope that helps at least a little bit.

Yessss! Thank you! The current version does not seem healthy for my old MacBook - considering my tab hoarding problem.

I think CoreAnimation is a macOS system library. so this won't do anything for linux

Correct. Anything Linux related is something completely else.

Congrats on shipping! Beyond the power consumption wins, I'm _so_ happy to see be resolved by enabling CoreAnimation!
