Firefox 3 Beta 5 on Hardy Heron

with 4 comments

Firefox 3 is smoking fast on Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron). I’ve been testing with Gmail, Yahoo Mail and Google Reader and they all are visibly faster. You can expand a large message thread in Gmail in a couple of seconds now instead of the painfully long lag time that happened in FF2 or IE7.

I have IE 8 beta 1 on my laptop and so many core sites that I use render so poorly that it is not really viable at this point.  The word is out that its JavaScript speed will be much faster.  I hope to see them on par with each other soon.
