Switched off disable-gpu and got some some green "Hardware accelerated" options in Chrome://gpu - but still "Hardware accelerated but at reduced performance" against WebGL and "unavailable" against WebGL2 - as opposed to "Hardware Accelerated" against both webgl and webgl2 on my 3b+.6by9 wrote: ↑Fri Jul 05, 2019 10:54 amMerged yesterday - https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware/ ... 2203d125f8 (only the firmware changes were reverted in the followup commit, and this was a kernel only change).
Note that this will not automatically remove the --disable-gpu flag from Chromium.
And Youtube in Chromium ran like a dog on the pi 4

Yes indeed. I take back my last two comments. In being too clever for my own good, I'd kept in a bunch of chromium customizations that actually undid the good work in the new Kernel. it dawned on me during the day and sure enough, removing those I'm getting very fine performance from Youtube.
