Mozilla Unleashes JaegerMonkey Enabled Firefox 4

An anonymous reader writes “Mozilla has published the first Firefox 4 build that integrates a new JavaScript engine that aims to match the performance in IE9 and reduces the gap to Safari, Opera and Chrome. This is really the big news we have been waiting for all along with Firefox 4 and it appears that the JavaScript performance is pretty dramatic and seems to beat IE9 at least as far as ConceivablyTech shows. Good to see Mozilla back in the game.” The Mozilla blog gives a good overview of the improvements this brings; Tom’s Hardware also covers the release.
