Enable Google Chrome 8 GPU accelerated rendering

The Chrome 8 comes with GPU acceleration. But this feature is disabled by default.

To enable this feature, just startup Chrome with parameter :

--enable-gpu-plugin --enable-gpu-rendering --enable-accelerated-2d-canvas --enable-accelerated-compositing

Then you should find the gpu plugin enabled in tab config:plugins.

I tried this on my old laptop ( Debian Lenny + Chrome testing brunch version 8 ). Didn't get to it works well. The web page be rendered in a mess.

Then try to start Chrome without the --enable-gpu-rendering, everything seems recovered. But didn't find anything noticeable accelerated comparing with the one without hardware accelerated.

The GPU rendering is still an incomplete functionality.

The testing web page is from Microsoft, http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Performance/FishIETank/

My score is around 20 fishes with 15 FPS and the CPU is fully loaded.

What's a pity.
