Chromium 85 stuttering and freezing

Hello

Chromium version 85.0.4183.102-1 stutters and lags whenever I attempt to create a new browser window (not tab), or whenever i drag and drop an existing tab to detach it.
This new chromium window stutters, freezes and lags, whenever I create a new tab on it as well.

The behavior does not appear in Chromium version and before.

I have these flags in

~/.config/chromium-flags.conf

:

--process-per-site
--ignore-gpu-blacklist
--enable-gpu-rasterization
--enable-zero-copy

Removing them one-by one or all of them doesn't change the browser's behavior at all.

I am also aware of this Intel Graphics but it doesn't help either.

As a workaround, I have currently added chromium at

IgnorePkg

Anyone knows what to do to resolve this?

Re: Chromium 85 stuttering and freezing

I'm using AMD graphics here. I had to add the following to the chromium-flags.conf file to solve graphics problems with the newest Chromium version, maybe try it and see if it alsohelps with your Intel graphics:

--use-gl=desktop

I saw this option mentioned in the last two pages of this thread here:

Re: Chromium 85 stuttering and freezing

Many thanks! I added this option and it resolved the issue indeed!
(There is some brief lag/stutter when you detach a tab to create a new window, but it goes away, nothing compared to what happens without the flag)
