firefox 3.1beta2 available with faster java scrit

If you’re  waiting for the arrival of Firefox 3.1, you may want to sit tight. While the 3.1b2 is now available in the nightly builds, you probably don’t need to make the jump just yet – unless you’re looking for speedier javascript processing.

Here are some rich features of firefox 3.1 beta2

The changes that are included are a good start, and bode well for the final release of 3.1.A quick comparison on acid3.acidtests.org revealed a score of 90 in 3.1b2 versus a 71 in 3.0.3 – a gain of about about 27%. Not too shabby!

The improved ctrl+tab switching looks and functions well, and the new TraceMonkey javascript engine provides a nice performance boost. You’ll have to activate it yourself by opening about:config and setting the javascript.options.jit.content boolean to true.

So stay tuned to the nightly builds on Mozilla’s FTP server for the latest releases.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
