WebRender is known for being extremely fast. But WebRender isn’t really about making rendering faster. It’s about making it smoother.

With WebRender, we want apps to run at a silky smooth 60 frames per second (FPS) or better no matter how big the display is or how much of the page is changing from frame to frame. And it works. Pages that chug along at 15 FPS in Chrome or today’s Firefox run at 60 FPS with WebRender.

What’s next for WebRender?

We look forward to landing WebRender in Firefox as part of Quantum Render in 2018, a few releases after the initial Firefox Quantum release. This will make today’s pages run more smoothly. It also gets Firefox ready for the new wave of high-resolution 4K displays, because rendering performance becomes more critical as you increase the number of pixels on the screen.

But WebRender isn’t just useful for Firefox. It’s also critical to the work we’re doing with WebVR, where you need to render a different frame for each eye at 90 FPS at 4K resolution.

An early version of WebRender is currently available behind a flag in Firefox. Integration work is still in progress, so the performance is currently not as good as it will be when that is complete. If you want to keep up with WebRender development, you can follow the GitHub repo, or follow Firefox Nightly on Twitter for weekly updates on the whole Quantum Render project.
