Selected Test Results

What works

Installation, web page rendering (YouTube, CNN, Google Docs/Calendar, Mozilla), full-screen operation, printing (cups-pdf), installing a theme, installing uBlock Origin, Youtube HTML5 videos, CNN Flash videos, CNN RSS feed/Live Bookmarks, 100/100 on Acid3 test (with uBlock Origin disabled), Samorost Flash game, Flash settings manager, downloading 7-Zip.

What does not

Web pages sometimes don't repaint until scrolled, especially when loaded via the search box.

Some characters of some fonts are not fully drawn.  On CNN the remote Helvetica Neue W01 45 Light WOFF font for example.

Flash games sometimes don't repaint correctly resulting in large black areas.

Print preview occasionally doesn't repaint properly when scrolling (only a corner of the view repaints).

Tooltips are often entirely black.  Seems to occur when the target doesn't have focus.

Highlight doesn't show on some menus (RSS feeds for example) when cursor hovers over elements.

In the download Library, attempting to "Open Containing Folder" via icon on downloaded file listing fails:
fixme:shell:SHOpenFolderAndSelectItems 0xc4c8280 1 0x127ee604 0x0: stub


What was not tested

The billions of other add-ons, plug-ins, and web sites.
