Firefox 3.1 BetaDescarga
With the release of Chrome, the rest of the browsers continue their journey at a fast pace to present their respective javascript engines and improvements that allow them to follow or rather maintain their positions. It’s getting hard to be victorious in such a fierce war.

The Mozilla Foundation presented Tracemonkey , the new javascript engine that will be incorporated in the next final version of Firefox 3.1 if there are no surprises. This will improve loading times, especially on pages that make as much use of javascript as Google’s own applications (Gmail, Google Docs,…)

But if we download the current Beta version it is disabled by default. To activate it we must go to about:config , then by filtering we search for jit and change False to True . With these simple steps everything will be activated and we will start to notice a substantial improvement in performance. Note that this is a beta version so we may experience some unexpected shutdowns and crashes.

On the other hand there is the latest version of the webkit r36640 , available today September 19th is its official website. It incorporates the new version of the SquirrelFish javascript engine, the SquirrelFish Extreme . Which, according to the comparisons made by them, doubles the performance of the normal version.

A good way to see what the new versions that I hope will appear as soon as possible, as well as the Mac version of Chrome. And all this without forgetting that there are still things to improve in these eh!, not everything is going to be improve the speed of execution.
