    I see on the 65 beta they are using a colored title bar on Windows 10. I use the dark theme and previously it was all dark. Now it uses the current theme color. It took me a minute to figure out why it looked different.

    Why does blocking third party dll injection make Firefox worse?

    Chrome already does this. It's done to increase browser stability. This is not a bad thing.

    Because there are useful programs that need to hook with DLL's to do their thing properly... DisplayFusion for example, so long as there is a choice for the user to disable this, I'm fine with it, but if they take that option away Firefox will be worse.

    There are 0 useful programs that perform DLL injection in browsers. Blocking trash software like DisplayFusion is a bonus.

    WebRender, a part of Mozilla's next-generation engine Servo and written in the Rust language, will support more chips from FF 67. WebRender is a website renderer which makes stronger use of the GPU which in turn will improve the performance of Firefox considerably.

    So far only Nvidia chips have been supported. From FF v67 also several Intel chips (details) and AMD chips (details) will be supported, too.

    Does WebRender needs specific drivers to function properly? I mean Intel's proprietary drivers for Windows are different from open-source Linux's Mesa drivers.
