Performance improvements in Firefox 2.0

Wow, was just showing off a bit of CloudGrove and was a bit shocked and embarrased at how slow it was responding. It turns out that on the FC6 box that I was demoing with had Firefox 1.5 installed. Afterwards I did a little compare by installing Firefox 2.0 next to Firefox 1.5 and there just isn’t any comparison. For AJAX style coding where you are moving divs around on the page, sometimes quite quickly, Firefox 2.0 is lightyears ahead in performance. Hopefully not that many people are running the old version out there because it’s going to make things painful for me if they are.

Next step, compelete evaluations with IE. Fingers crossed, but I’m abit scared about what’s going to happen.
