Tag Archives: WebKit rendering
The newest builds of Chromium feature a Chrome Experiment via “about:flags” that I have not seen before: composited render layer borders. When I first looked at this, I assumed it must have something to do with the increased use of graphical capabilities being added into Chrome, and I was right.
According to the Chromium documentation regarding WebKit rendering basics, a RenderObject is associated with a RenderLayer. The purpose of these layers is to allow content to overlap each other as they are composited. The problem, however, is that oftentimes these layers are either semi-transparent or not visible at all.
