Fennec for Android (aka Firefox for Mobile) Gets Hardware Acceleration Support

Fennec for Android (Firefox for Mobile), now has hardware acceleration support in the nightlies with OpenGL-powered compositing.

Fennec for Android

“It’s off by default, but a quick blast over to about:config will reveal layers.accelerate-all, which should be set to true to enable OpenGL acceleration.
