    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.

    I have been running the 64 bit nightly for months and let it update every day. Haven't had a single crash.

    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.
