Right. On mobile devices (and Firefox OS is a mobile phone OS) being 20% slower is still needlessly terrible.

And asm.js isn't portable in that it actively hurts performance on non asm.js browsers according to your link.

So now you're taking a 20% hit and losing the benefit of ubiquity. Talk about making a bad situation worse.
