As discussed on dev-platform, the rough plan is to add CSS filter support to Moz2D. We will provide a (SIMD-accelerated) CPU path, and backends can overwrite that with backend-specific fast paths. The layers system will get a separate GL-based path for the same effects. This is a meta bug to track the work.

I assume you mean the CSS filters as defined in the W3C Filter Effects[1] draft like "filter: blur(5px);", right?

Both those and SVG filters, really.

Is there any timeline/forecast for adding these css filters? Chrome/Safari/Webkit supports them since ages ago and they are much needed by so many developers around the world
