Hi,   These two libraries do pretty different things.
Cairo concerns itself with drawing 2D vector graphics, including curves - while GLFW provides a way of using OpenGL, for 3D.
It's possible to use Cairo to draw 2D shapes onto a texture that you create in OpenGL.You can also compile Cairo with the experimental OpenGL backend enabled that can output using OpenGL itself, though it's not always a guaranteed speed-up.

There is little information on this, if someone has something to say at this point, please tell me, pros and cons combinations of these two libraries.
