There are already patches being worked on and reviewed that return much of the performance inprovements. I still see a major improvement on first launch after a reboot or a logout. On my machine without turbo Mozilla takes 15 seconds on first launch after reboot and with turbo it takes about 2 seconds. All subsequent launches without turbo are about 5 seconds and with turbo about 4 seconds. The old turbo was about 1 second on all subsequent launches and I think we'll see much of that performance return on the trunk very soon (next week or so). Thanks for testing turbo, and be sure to report any crashes you experience. We're trying very hard to root out any instability that it might cause.
