** Description changed:

  We all know the Web support of an operating system is becoming more and
  more important for users.
  The situation right now in terms of browser Performance and power
  consumption of GNU/Linux is not really in a good shape compared to the 2
  other competitors : Windows and Mac OSX.
  Windows 10 : Microsoft has shown how its integrated browser is more
  efficient and less hungry on power consumption than other browsers.
  Mac OSX: Safari is also showing a great power consumption and integrated
  SO this bug is to track progress for an integrated browser for Ubuntu (
  can be firefox, chromium, something else ) that would out of the box  :
  - Use GPU for video decoding
  - Use GPU for Web 3D rendering like webGL
  - integrate as much as possible EME HTML5 for DRM support (like firefox
  49 for netflix)
  Please suggest other features in the comments
