Fix qutebrowser high cpu usage

I love qutebrowser for its vim keys but I found that qutebrowser’s cpu usage was too high. Indeed, the cpu usage reached 80% on my sandy bridge i7 laptop when I had one archwiki tab open. To fix the high cpu usage, I disabled software rendering. Here are the steps I followed:

- Restart qutebrowser
Keep in mind that if you use Nouveau drivers you must have software rendering enabled and this fix will probably not work for you.
