The Empire Strikes Back

Apple Special Event 2017 was Live streamed only with Apple Safari and Microsoft Edge browsers.

Does that mean that all Google with Chrome and Linux with Mozilla Firefox population is dismissed ?

Android SDK emulator - GPU driver issues

If you have an Intel HD Graphics running the Android SDK emulator in slow software mode, it's intended that a compatibility OpenGL renderer is not used.

I'm sorry about it, but we need to be able to switch to better-supported Intel GPU drivers especially when running high API levels (25+) of system images. Intel iGPUs of that generation (and older) have many issues with OpenGL compatibility.

You could try in terminal:

emulator -list-avds
emulator -avd <AVD_NAME> -gpu host

but that is not permanent fix.

Real resolution to this problem is fine tune the Android emulator with next procedure:

If you'd still like to use the native OpenGL renderer on a Intel HD GPU (at your own risk), go to :

Settings (in Android emulator)
section: General

option: OpenGL ES renderer (requires restart)
select: ANGLE (D3D9)

option: OpenGL ES API level (requires restart)
select: Compatibility (OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0)

and restart your Android emulator in HAX fast virtual mode with hardware rendering...
