  • Changes are not just under-the-hood, synthetic-benchmark, on-paper thing either: the difference between FF5 and FF8 is very noticeable.
  • Considerably faster at JavaScript execution, posting benchmark results that are about 15% faster than Firefox 5.
  • Firefox 8 is as fast or faster than the latest Dev Channel build of Chrome 14. Chrome’s WebGL implementation is still faster, but with Azure, Firefox’s 2D performance is better than Chrome. 
  • JavaScript performance is also virtually identical.
