I saw these today:
and I do think that there are people who will choose a browser based on
1) JS execution is not rendering speed. Rendering a website takes more
than just JS - actually, for most websites, JS isn't the main factor in
rendering speed at all.
2) SunSpider numbers are benchmarks that concentrate on running lots of
JS commands over and over again in tight loops. Real-World JS is usually
not doing that, so it's comparing apples with oranges. Both are fruit
and somewhat sphere-shaped and still they are completely different.
3) You are free to work on speeding up JS in Mozilla even more, the code
is all open and contributors are always welcome.
4) SeaMonkey 2 will ship with the same TraceMonkey-enabled JS engine as
Firefox 3.1, and the current versions are still far from optimized.
