Hardware acceleration problem

Since Chrome updated to Version 88.0.4324.150 (Official Build) (64-bit) - I'm getting a Hardware acceleration error, despite it being turned on. I even turned it off and on again, but problems still exist. The game is so slow it's unplayable.

Today it's almost playable. I had to turn off hardware acceleration, reload Chrome, turn it on, reload chrome, and that made the game load. It's still sluggish and freezes, which requires me to repeat all the steps with reloading, but I can do "something".

My understanding is Chrome has an internal, invisible "blacklist" of specific video cards. If your system has a video card on that blacklist Chrome will not use hardware acceleration regardless of the setting.

So the most feasible option is to play using another browser that doesn't have the blacklist. Most people suggest Firefox. I find that Firefox's performance is slightly slower but it's still playable and definitely far more playable than a blacklisted Chrome.

I dont think this is the problem, in this case, I to have experienced this issue mine was using the Opera GX browser which is Chromium based and I also had the Hardware Acceleration on and on start I would get the error and it was unplayable. I did not fix it as such but after switching to another browser, Edge, I think, it started working properly. None of my other cities play was affected on Chrome, Opera, Firefox, or Edge.
