I'm opening this topic for Google Chrome specifically, but my issue is general like for many on this forum. I'm struggling to find "good" hardware - laptops, PCs, tablets, phones that don't cause eye strain or even motion sickness. I used to have 0 issues prior to, say, 2011/2012, but since that time it's getting worse and worse and I know it's not me as old hardware I still have is still perfectly OK for me.
Unlike a lot of people on this forum I am rather confident the source of these issues are various forms of flickering, interestingly I don't believe the usual suspect of PWM is the source of any of this, although of course it is certainly better to avoid PWM, especially with lower frequencies. On the contrary, speaking of PWM, I read some forum posts claiming that some monitors have non-PWM brightness control implemented so bad that it may actually cause current fluctuations that result in a more serious low frequency flicker, worse than anything that PWM may create.
My symptoms are probably better than many other people as I've been able to get used to majority of the new gear finally (after some research and testing), but every second of using it I realize it is not OK and not comfortable, it's just acceptable.
In this particular instance I have a question about Google Chrome. I used it for a short time longer time ago and never touched ever since (I'm on FF) until now in order to try out Google Stadia. The browser is terrible, causing eye strain and motion sickness. I am quite certain it is caused by temporal dithering, but I don't remember it from before so it had to be introduced in the meantime, probably several years back.
My questions to the forum users are following:
1/ Are you experiencing the same - no issue in Firefox while you get eye strain with Chrome?
2/ Are you aware of any method to turn this dithering "feature" off in Chrome?
3/ If you do experience the same, can you support this in the following Chrome Help community thread and, more importantly, the bug report to Chromium devs?
Any help, support or comment is greatly appreciated.
