A Guide to Hardware Acceleration in Modern Browsers | Epicenter�| Wired.com

There you have it: of the five major browsers out there, two of them have betas with hardware acceleration enabled for the three most common layers in use. This is a really good thing, because it forces the rest to take notice and not screw around trying to push this feature back. I am also finding it interesting how Firefox was able to set theirs up to allow access to non-Windows hardware APIs later in the process.

I guess we'll see if Apple is going to be able to do something that works for both OSX and Windows since Quartz 2D is an OSX feature.
