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).

I've been using the Mac builds on and off for the past couple of weeks and this problem, if it did affected Macs, most noticable on Win32. In fact a few days ago Mozilla on an iMac (233MHz/266MHz/333Mhz, not sure, but has 64 megs of RAM) was BLAZINGLY faster than than the Win32 build on my AMD K6-II 450MHz with 96 megs RAM

With today's builds, not sure if the Mac builds are faster than all but it certainly did not seem slower, but Moz speed is up dramatically on my computer and it feels much more even now.
