  1. There is more room in JavaScript to get faster. The most recent nightly builds include Mozilla’s Firefox 9 nightly builds include support for type inference, which accelerates Firefox in JavaScript benchmarks by up to 32%.

    While we considered the JavaScript performance battle between web browsers to be critical up until the beginning of this year, a fast compiler has become a given in modern web browsers and the focus on performance disciplines has largely shifted to HTML5-driven features, such as Canvas. Google, which has been responsible for the aggressive JavaScript push in 2009 and 2010, appeared to have abandoned JavaScript performance as it considered JavaScript compilers not as the bottleneck of web browser app performance anymore.

  2. Now.Firefox 7 released a few days ago. I feel it hasn‘t any progress.I heard that orca browser will be merged into avant browser .The gecko engine world will be lose a member in the future .Is it a good or bad thing ?

  3. Some years ago I always use firefox for all my work and home use. But to day when Google has Chrome, I use Chrome for all my home browse, it’s better than firefox when play video online and some other function such as synchrony. But firefox still is the best for my work.
