I'm not sure what he said, but I assume he said something about Electrolysis.

Didn't they ditch Electrolysis because of issues with many nsplugins? I am not aware of other reasons it was shitcanned.

Plugins and add-ons AFAIK. There are also memory/performance implications, which apparently were not insignificant on mobile platforms. Given that Chrome uses more memory than Firefox, it's perhaps not insignificant on desktop either.
