Mozilla juices Firefox's JavaScript with IonMonkey

Quote:
Mozilla has begun building a new technology called IonMonkey into Firefox to improve its JavaScript performance.

High JavaScript performance is essential in today's hotly competitive browser market, because JavaScript is the language behind complicated Web sites and Web apps such as Google Docs and Facebook. IonMonkey has now been packaged into the "nightly" version of Firefox 18 for hardcore developers; that version is scheduled to become the mainstream version of the browser early in 2013.

IE better need to catch up. Its javascript performance is getting slower and slower compared to rapid release updates from Mozilla and Chromium.

I've noticed the difference in JavaScript performance between Internet Explorer and Firefox/Chrome to be increasing, with Google and Mozilla leading the way in performance.

One question, which keeps returning to my mind, is Google Chrome faster or is Mozilla Firefox faster?

I have FF13... it looks too much like IE, which I don't care for. Maybe someday Mozilla will wake up and stop trying to make an IE clone. Yeah, I'm opinionated.

Firefox has improved a lot in the 18 nightly builds, but yes, its JavaScript speed is still the Achilles heel.

Google Chrome as for now is currently not only faster than Firefox, but faster than anything, at least in my computer. Compared with IE10, Opera 12.50, Safari 5, and Firefox 18 nightly, in many tests and regular browsing.

Chrome -> IE10 -> Opera 12.50 -> Firefox.

Almost all browsers have now very similar GUIs.
