gEvas: the GTK+2 to Evas Bridge
I have omitted memory consumption figures from the article in order to conserve space, as those figures are less important for modern desktop machines. A future benchmark will pit QTCanvas resizing against an Edje resize program to provide a more fair comparison between those two.
If you are looking for a canvas for a new GTK+2 application, consider both GNOME Canvas and gEvas plus Edje before hacking.
