Default Tinkering with "Developer options" under System settings :D

This seems new...go to your system settings and try out Developer options, found some new things that I think we can use our newly beloved Tegra chips for, namely "Force GPU rendering" and the Window animation scale, and Transition animation scale... FGPUR seems to now be making quite a difference!

Update: Before enabling FGPUR, browsing seemed no better, now it's INCREDIBLE!

Force GPU Rendering seemed to make my browser a lot slower

That's weird, I got a huge jump in both the stock browser and Dolphin.

That setting only forces 2D apps that aren't using the GPU to use it. The stock browser is already set to use it (certainly; it's an assumption but I'm sure a pretty sound one). So, the setting should have no effect on it whatsoever.

I tried enabling "Force GPU rendering" but it killed two of my favourite applications:

ABC (Australia)
Currently Tech News

Thats for development of android apps and testing the apps. It's part of the new ICS. The galaxy nexus has it also. Altho the nexus has a lot more options.

It's a developer option for a reason, it is meant for developers to test if their apps work with and without GPU rendering or not without requiring to compile two APK files of the app.

Forcing GPU on all apps is bad. It will slow down or break some apps from working entirely. Leave that for developers to decide if GPU acceleration is supported in the app or not.
