    Mozilla enabled the new WebRender component of the Firefox web browser by default on Firefox Nightly installations that meet the system requirements.

    WebRender is a new technology that makes better use of a device's video card to improve overall performance.

    The project reached a new milestone recently when Mozilla activated WebRender by default on Nightly versions of the Firefox web browser if a supported Nvidia video card is installed and if the operating system is Windows 10. Mozilla ran a Shield Study before that to test WebRender on Firefox Nightly.

    WebRender is a component of Mozilla's next generation Servo technology that is written entirely in Rust. As the name implies, it is a component for rendering web content and the main goal of the component is to improve the performance of the rendering process by moving the heavy lifting from the processor to the video card.
