Discussion about official Mozilla Firefox builds
I'm getting fairly faster numbers in Sunspider since the latest Nightly. On my laptop I usually got around ~700ms in the test, and now I get around ~600. One of the tests I ran gave me a 580.

7% is a big win for TM these days.
Arh,. I hope not when chrome / Opera are 100% faster then us.
You cannot only work from benchmarks. Benchmarks do not represent real world cases in most cases, actually they are usually tailored to meet the specific performances of the browser vendor that built them. Mozilla and Opera are two of the honest ones who did not go off and build their own, even though I am fairly sure Mozilla could easily write one on which their tracer bested everything easily.
Benchmarks are a really, really bad way of representing speed but those are all we have unfortunately

Also, fatvals is supposed to improve the way the engines talk to each other, not the engines itself, so it might not show improvements on benchmarks but it will feel much better on real world scenarios.
There is also https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=564953 which gives a 12% speedup on 32bit and 25% on 64bit builds.
They are really really good way to win over users from using other browsers though.

Do we really care about that? It's not like they're leaving for Internet Explorer, so that's good. And it's not like Mozilla Corporation is in financial troubles...
Isn't it annoying when someone uses an avatar that says absolutely nothing about themselves and is there just to look cool?

Which is exactly why Microsoft and Google have their own and also make reports all of the time full of spurious claims about speed and usage statistics. The whole mess reminds me of claims you see in car commercials. Everyone builds the fastest, safest, roomiest, most efficient cars and win the most awards in their own tests and commercials.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

Does Mozilla really need, or want, these users? I'm not making an elitist reference, but wondering about the users who are easily swayed by marketing claims. These are the ones who ought to stay on Chrome simply because Chrome is not customizable (no about:config to mess up).
