How to force-enable hardware acceleration in Chrome, Chromium

Google Chrome uses hardware acceleration of your GPU to ensure smooth scrolling and animations.

By default, Google blacklists most Linux GPU drivers from hardware acceleration because they get too many support calls. The result is that on Linux, Chrome will often have slow scrolling and animations.

Please make sure your Chrome browser has hardware-acceleration enabled so your experience matches that of most users of the apps you build. You should usually be able to override the blacklist without issues.


chrome://gpu should have "Hardware accelerated" for Compositing and some more. If not, enable chrome://flags/#ignore-gpu-blocklist and relaunch your browser.
