    HowTo: minimize CPU usage when scrolling websites with Beryl

    As the title says, I was looking for a solution to minimize the CPU usage since I surf the web quite a lot and it was a little bit annoying. I´m using Swiftfox, but it should work in firefox as well. The problem was the sooth scrolling, to inactivate it go to Edit-Preferences-Advanced and uncheck smooth scrolling.

    Scroolling still requires lot of CPU usage, but much better now, hope this help some of you.

    I found disabling the "disable gl yield setting" in the advanced beryl options in beryl-manager greatly improved scrolling.

    In the right click menu of beryl-manager (the thing in the system tray)-> "Advanced Beryl Options"-> "Disable GL Yield Setting Use this to fix some redraw bugs" and untick the option.

    This option is not available in 0.1.4 and I do not remember it ever being available in 0.1.3 CVS.

     $ dpkg-query -s beryl-core
