Wow! Well done, Mozilla. Just when I was starting to lose faith in your browser for its regular crashes and falling market share, you go and do something like beat Chrome in a Fudzilla speed test. These results are hardly the end-all-be-all of speed tests for Firefox 3.6, but it's at least as good sign of how well the build is progressing.

The finished version of 3.6 isn't expected out until later in Q1, but the performance of this Release Candidate is certainly heartening. Firefox 3.6 had a total performance score of 4352, which is a fair bit behind Safari's 5401 but comfortably ahead of Chrome's 3772. Google needs to get off of their butts and improve things if they want to go on pushing Chrome as the fastest way to browse.

My excitement for Chrome OS has started to wane a bit, but the Google developers did say the code could be used to make a Safari or Firefox-driven version of the OS. I'm not trying to push anyone into trying anything, I'm just saying it would be awesome and the person who got it to work would certainly win fame and (why not?) beautiful women.
