An anonymous reader writes “Google is already experimenting with GPU acceleration in its latest Chrome developer builds. Chrome 7 can separate different layers of a webpage into CPU and GPU processes and combine those layers using the GPU as long as the browser is now launched with certain switches. Chromium 7 has also a new Labs feature that reveals that Google is thinking about moving tabs from the top of the browser top the left side. It seems that Chrome will be catching up with Firefox 4 and IE9 in terms of hardware acceleration soon.”
