Can I change from blink renderer to webkit in Linux?

If I understand this correctly, blink is the new renderer compared to webkit. When Chromium used to use the old layout, did it use webkit or blink? How do I switch from blink to webkit on Brave on Linux?

The engine is chromium(blink) based, no way to “switch engines” just too many changes between the rendering engines. Blink is much more feature full compared to webkit.

The problem is that it runs like crap on my computer when runing Linux but on Windows it is fine. I don’t know why, does blink have issues with i915 Intel drivers or something?

Linux actually does outperforms Windows with CPU and GPU benchmark tests. But when it comes chromium-based it runs like crap, even with hardware acceleration enabled. Any idea how to solve this?

Hardware acceleration = off might actually speed things up, especially on less powerful intergrated gpu’s. Also limiting your installed extensions will help also.

Runs comparable to other browsers on my openSuse Tumbleweed system. Brave Dev channel.

tried that it is still laggy.

Anything chromium based just lags.
