Re: [Public WebGL] Discussion with Xorg developers



Thanks!

I can see that you're using a runtime blacklist; we're preparing the infrastructure to do that too:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=625160

however for now all we have is compiled-in blacklisting code as I pointed to.

One big upcoming change is that for the Firefox 4.0 release, we're aggressively blacklisting all old (older than June 2010) NVIDIA and ATI drivers, as well as graphics cards from minor manufacturers, on Windows:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=623338
We may selectively reenable older drivers and/or other graphics cards later.
