  window.open() loading them in the active view.

  surface if it could have changed between exported frames, which
  saves some CPU time.

  COG_PLATFORM_DRM_VIDEO_MODE environment variable.

## What is Cog?

Cog is a suite of utilities for the WPE WebKit port, including a reusable
library (libcogcore), a launcher (named "cog" as well) suitable to be
used as a Web application container and a reusable library, and a tool
to control the launcher remotely (cogctl) using D-Bus.
