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.

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!

Hmm. This is the reason I switched to Safari, do I want to switch back yet again?
