After reading last Stable Channel notes, you may wonder what is this brand new freon graphics stack. So in a nutshell, project ozone¹/freon is Chrome OS without X server.

This project is about removing X11 dependency and add hardware overlay support in order to:
- provide better performance/reduced power consumption for WebGL and video
- reduce Chrome OS binary size

If your Chrome Device is in Developer Mode, you may want to switch to a Virtual Terminal with <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<F2> and see if you get a "Welcome to frecon!" message. If so, you're actually using frecon², the freon console in Kernel Mode Setting³.
