Another important thing that will start appearing with Chrome 6 and future releases is support for hardware acceleration, which will shift some of the heavy lifting away from the CPU and onto the graphics chip. This should deliver better results, especially with graphics-intensive chores like rendering videos. According to Google, the Mac and Windows client of Chrome will get hardware acceleration powered by different technologies, and it’s unclear at this time if and how Linux will get its own hardware acceleration technology.
