I'm comparing this build to 1.0 from the Aviary branch, so I'm not listing fixes and regressions. See the previous Burning Edge post for a comparison between the branch and trunk.

Windows builds: Official Windows, Official Windows installer (discussion), BlueFyre's O2 G7 SSE

    well the installer seemed to go smoothly, starting it gives me some errors tho. But it still works. I get some xpcom errors if i’m not mistaken

    This build is much faster with DHTML than Firefox 1.0, and I think it is generally faster in loading pages too. I tried a javascript benchmark (http://www.24fun.com/downloadcenter/benchjs/benchjs.html) with Fx 1.0 and I got 53.68 seconds, then I tried it with this build and I got 39.64 seconds !!! (MacOS X, 800 MHz G4)

    Just fyi you need to A)make sure all javacript options are turn on and b) popups are enabled. Otherwise it doesn’t work correctly.

    Unfortunately as much as I like firefox its still dog slow in many respects.

    my results PIII 7000
    Firefox 1.0 78.36
    IE 6.0 XP SP2 50.1

    Next up I guess I’ll try this new build to see if I can confirm the new builds speed.
