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 just can't see how my opinion's so unfounded. Have you actually _used_ the builds on different platforms?

I hope Mozilla's a great cross-platform browser as much as anyone. Based on the evidence so far, though, I certainly have cause to be critical. Remember, the company says this product's going beta within sixty days. There's easily six _months_ worth of work left to really achieve platform parity.
