if not downright elated to know that Mozilla plans a “massive performance boost” for Firefox 3.1.
Before everyone gets too excited there is no official release date for Firefox 3.1 but bets are good that it will arrive before the end of the year. I say that because Microsoft plans to ship Internet Explorer 8 before the end of the year and Mozilla won’t be caught with its pants down. But it may not make an appearance before next year.
No one really thinks that any version of IE will be faster than Firefox, ever. Maybe Microsoft does but if it does then it is just lying to itself. But Firefox does have some competition in Opera and Safari. Okay, maybe just Safari.
Apple will be implementing something called Squirrelfish in Safari 4 which has the same purpose the new Mozilla engine will. Which one is superior, why, Firefox of course.
From a usability and addon perspective there is simply no beating Firefox, ever, for all time. Mark my words, this will hold true until at least the Sun goes supernova.
