I’d love to be able to resize fonts at 60fps. Hopefully other browser vendors figure out a GPU font glyph renderer soon as well.

Or they can choose to just use Pathfinder. It's licensed under Apache 2.0.

My guess is that Apple and Microsoft probably won't use any core tech that involves OpenGL anymore, moving to their own DirectX/Metal.

Pathfinder's main approach is on the CPU. The OpenGL parts are pretty minimal and easily ported.

It is a shame though, with vulkan available
