Chromium hardware acceleration disabled

November 26, 2023 — BarryK

On one of my laptops, Chromium freezes for several seconds at startup, due to GPU hardware acceleration being enabled. Firefox GPU acceleration is awful; however, Chromium GPU acceleration is OK on a most of my computers, just this one laptop is a problem.

I have changed the default to hardware acceleration disabled. This will be for a new installation of Easy; if you update to Easy 5.6.4, then you will have to go into "Settings" to manually disable it, that's if you want to.

Here are the commits:
