Mozilla & Gecko clones "IonMonkey is the name of Mozilla's new JavaScript JIT compiler, which aims to enable many new optimizations in the SpiderMonkey JavaScript engine. InfoQ had a small Q&A with Lead Developer David Anderson, about this new development that could bring significant improvements in products that use the SpiderMonkey engine like Firefox, Thunderbird, Adobe Acrobat, MongoDB and more."

If it's Gentoo, for example, the build process of Firefox is already what Mozilla is going to do, i.e. the optimizations per se have taken place as soon as you typed "emerge firefox"
