The Fix is In!

Sunday February 27th, 2000

For those of you on Win9x, grab today's (2-27-00) build. The performance fix is in (the disabling of timing code) that results in a substantial speedup. For example, in today's build, Tinderbox loads in 5 seconds on my line, vs. 14.56 seconds on the 2-25-00 nightly. Reload: 3.9 seconds, vs. 14.23 seconds. Other pages show the same speedup (and you can run two builds side-by-side to see for yourself).


#10 My bet is...

My bet is that most users don't understand how the scrollwheel works in Moz. It works very differently in IE. For moz (as far as i've found with my mswheelmice) you must press down on the wheel when the pointer is over the scroll bar. This "locks" the scroll bar and allows the user to move around in the page. I find this technique far less helpful than IE's implementation. That allows you to click anywhere, move in any direction etc.
