Sounds like the whole perf thing is not as clear-cut in that comparison as it is when comparing Safari to Chimera (off the 1.0 branch) or Netscape 7 (1.0 branch) on a broadband in-lab connection... ;)"

Don't you think thatn beating some product also means manking the product better. Car manufacturers use other manufcaturers cars as benchmarks in trying to make their lines better. What's wrong with that? If you want to make a car who excels in cornering abilities, you look ar cars in the similar categories and make sure you beat the best of the crop. Nothing wrong with Mozilla examining the competition and using benchmarks as ways of improving their product (tab browsing was not invented by Mozilla, but the success and popularity of Opera's tabs made it worthwhile copying that functionality).

I have to add that Mozilla as it is, is a very fine product that is getting better and better over time.
