On the fairness of browser speed

We’re going to do a baseline JIT for Firefox 4. It’s not done yet, and it hasn’t landed in any tree yet, so nobody’s tested it. It’s gonna give similar performance characteristics to Chrome. But we’re also gonna do tracing on top of that. What we discovered, is that for a lot of applications, especially when you want to do anything that’s actually CPU intensive, we smoke everybody. It’s not even fair.

I love seeing geeks talk sh*t.
