Chrome already has GPU acceleration for SVG and CSS

I'm not what you can say the biggest fan of ChromeHowever, this does not mean that they do not recognize their merits or progress.
I read since VR-Zone.com the following article, which I have translated here 🙂

Google adds GPU acceleration for SVG and CSS to Chrome:

Google has added new options for   But by the full GPU acceleration tech to your browser Chrome, following the steps of Microsoft with Internet Explorer 9.

Chromium 18 incorporates hardware acceleration for filters CSS as well as graphics / vectors SVG, opening the doors for amazing and potentially wonderful sites (visual aspect or appearance) in the future.

Acceleration But by the full GPU acceleration tech guidance on SVG y CSS works well on Windows, Mac, Linux and in Chrome OSHowever, it is still considered experimental and possibly stays that way for a while; in addition to this it must be added that very few sites are those that support these new functions.

Unfortunately this novelty will not improve the performance (speed, etc.) of the browser. According to the link that they leave us to the benchmar that made Tom's Hardware.

Although it is still too early for this technology, it seems that soon we will see a new competition between Google, Mozilla, Microsoft and others for gaining in speed and performance by making use of this innovative technology.

And so the article ends.

Now, where I have doubts is in the beginning ... Did Microsoft take the lead here as stated in the article? … Did Internet Explorer 9 really already have this technology?

If there is anyone among the readers who knows about this please, I would be extremely grateful if you explained this with truthful data.

About the rest of the article, I think like the author, it is still too early for this technology. When HTML5 y CSS3 are in full swing, at that time (according to my modest criterion obviously) is that it could be more profitable, meanwhile it would only be one more letter that the developers of the browsers could use yes, but only for propaganda purposes. This once again I repeat, it's just my opinion 😀

What do you think?
Am I wrong and do you think that you can take advantage of it right now or not?

regards

    If microsoft already had that technology it would not be too strange, since as in the case of Ajax ... InternetExplorer 5.5 already supported it, because microsoft was its creator, I think, and it was not until Google used it in gmail so that it continues to grow more in popularity.

    Html5 and CSS3, it seems to me that they are already on the rise, because this year there are many websites that already make a lot of use to these technologies and for next year it will be much much more. And hopefully for IE10 it brings more things about the W5C Html3 and Css3 standards.
