Mozilla & Gecko clones As was anticipated, the boys and girls at Mozilla have released the final build of Firefox 3.5 today. Firefox 3.5 - originally supposed to be 3.1 - comes with many welcome improvements, chief among which is support for HTML5 audio and video tags.

TraceMonkey was developed in record time after both Nitro (formerly Squirrelfish/Squirrelfish Extreme) and V8 set the bar for JavaScript performance to new heights. I'm sure the Mozilla developers are content that TraceMonkey works correctly at the moment. Since Firefox 3.5 is out now I can imagine that the Mozilla developers will start to optimize TraceMonkey in ways which might cause a lot of breakage during development.

For 4.0 they want to turn on TraceMonkey for the UI, which in comparison to other browsers is now slower, but this does allow for a lot of customization.
