Firefox 3.1b1 Pre + TraceMonkey
Just downloaded the latest BETA release from Mozilla (codenamed “Minefield” – scary) and to my (pleasant) surprise, it comes with an optional TraceMonkey engine.
To enable TraceMonkey:
- Go to the about:config page, and click on the button to get past the warning message
- Enter jit in the field
Firefox now gets an 84/100 for the Acid 3 test (Google Chrome scores a 78/100)
- Google Chrome finished the test in 160ms. Impressive.
- Firefox comes in close at 205ms
- Internet Explorer 7 finished in 1008ms. I’m pretty sure IE8 beta does better than that though.
