Mozilla hopes to include a scaled down version of TraceMonkey in Firefox version 3.1, but it won’t be until the release of Firefox version 4.0 that we will see the full benefit.
It’s great to see how Firefox has gone from something of a niche internet browser only a few years ago to actually being a threat to Internet Explorer’s dominance of the market. If indeed these latest speed claims prove to be true in real world usage, I can imagine many applications being written specifically (or at least optimized) for Firefox – which should further help the open source browser grow its market share.
