Mozilla & Gecko clones For its upcoming Firefox 4.0 release, Mozilla has been concentrating a great deal on what is often cited as the main shortcoming of Firefox ... its speed. For example, Firefox 4.0 will include GPU acceleration for both rendering and compositing on Windows 7/Vista, OSX and Linux, and it will have GPU acceleration for compositing only for Windows XP.

Unfortunately, I have to wonder if the new speedy JS improvements will be turned on by default for the UI. They turned it off because it was interfering with at least one extension.

The last big speedup (with TraceMonkey) landed in 3.5 for content but was only flipped on for the UI in 3.6.
