Also its not marked as being beta/stable.

Just trying to understand why its there and since it is there, it presents me with a choice, and I have no information about why I would or would not try to use it, and what to expect if I did.

(in particular, and operating in great ignorance of how different apps do their graphics, given the lousy Flash performance I have on my 8200, I wondered if it could offer me any help there)
