You are right, I didn't notice it. However, I don't think that it is faster. The pages load in the same amount of time.

One regression, though. I was using one of the better nightlies from 2 weeks ago. I have this script that starts 5 instances of Moz with my favorite sites. It was very, very fast, on par with IE. Now with the milestone, it is noticiably slower.
