    It's still marked beta. If you see it in /. please check your sources.

    I haven't seen these gains from type inference. Peacekeeper score is still about half of what Chrome and Opera can muster.

    *Insert obligatory whine about addons here, and how Firefox is mad to increase its version so often and how Chrome is so much better*

    For my one Windows machine, I wish they'd hurry up with 64-bit support.

    What is keeping you? You can already run 64bit bit. http://nightly.mozilla.org/

    Wrong... The Javascript performance has BEEN faster the Chrome since FF8, uses far less ram, has a much larger array of useful addons and isn't being pushed out like a virus by a massive advertising conglomerate that has you convinced that they could never do any wrong...

    Firefox was "slower" in the same way that AMD CPUs are "slower" then Intel parts, user experience has always been much more consistent overall, at least for me, even if 10% "slower" the the competition.

    FF9 feels significally faster in rendering, but maybe it's just because I also changed the computer.

    And by the way, why do you have to mention apple in every post? I thought this was a site about linux, not IT news. Whether stuff works on other oses isn't relevant.

    I don't read unix here. I don't read bsd. I don't read windows. I don't read proprietary evil conglomerate. I just read linux. Better change that text if it's no longer applicable.

    I did not notice performance changes in peacekeeper, did not try other tests. However still the same sites have got problems on linux like:

    it works with opera, but ff/iceweasel uses full cpu with it...
