James W. (snorp), Platform Team (Randall, Jim, Eugen, Dylan)

  • It looks like I finally might be able to land the paint suppression patches, got some r+ and good comments. Also looked into web-page-replay, and put up a PR to make it work with Firefox. Nice tool, but could use some love. Profiled some other page load performance issues and found that handling redirects (302) on the main thread can really hurt us. Need to file a bug about that.
  • Randall is working through some tough problems with the native APZ. The fact that we do not use e10s is making some things very complicated.
  • Eugen is working on some media issues (MP4, MP3, VP8/9 w/ MSE) and trying to land some changes to nsIPerformance that will allow you to see thread and cpu time in addition to wall time.
  • Jim continues to land a bunch of JNI changes and refactoring. See his blog post here. He may also work on decoupling BHR from breakpad so we can update to a newer version and fix some of the bad crash reports we’re seeing.
  • Dylan is hammering away on bugs, currently moving some of the native calls in AndroidJNI to the new hotness that Jim wrote. He also helped me look into Web Page Replay.


  • Video Sandboxing, final touchups.
  • Tracking Protection/SafeBrowsing, multiple provider support.
  • Reviewing SafeBrowsing specs for v4.
