Nice, seems like we are going to see whether the stuff Mozilla has said about the Jaegermonkey performance holds true or not. Not that javascript speed makes a huge difference in my personal browsing experience, but it's always interesting to see how much performance they can muster.

You can already see it is true with the nightlies. Firefox 4 will be at least as fast as the most recent webkit with nitro. And in some cases Fx4 is already faster than Opera11 and Chrome9.
