Even though performance has increased significantly, I still use the nightlies only on the 900MHz/250MB machine at the university for daily use (there mozilla rocks). At my home machine (350MHz/250MB) it's really not usable for everyday work. I have to wait ages for the mail-window to come up.
I understand that it's difficult to push this harder. But then I expect that the page stating the system requirements gets updated, 233MHz is way to slow.
Or can we expect a major performance difference between the nightlies and the final release due to more time to optimize all compiler options etc.?
