Firefox 9 now Available, Boasts Speedier JavaScript Handling

Internet feeling a bit sluggish recently? -- but before you sail the malware-laden sea of software that promises to "speed up" your computer, you may want to check out Firefox 9. Mozilla's latest browser update features a tweak in its Javascript engine that boosts its benchmark performance by over 30 percent -- meaning that the new Firefox ought to give script heavy websites a run for their money. 

In addition to the new Javascript trick, which is called Type Inference, Firefox 9 improves theme integration and swipe navigation for Mac OS X users.

My Chrome has been playing up for me a lot recently so I'm actually sorely tempted to download this. I'm strongly considering it for sure now.

Sounds nice, but I'm using Chrome.

I'm not a fan of Chrome at all, it seems like a lot of stuff isn't compatible with Chrome. As much as I would like to support Chrome since it's made by Google I just can't.

Still haven't tried Chrome. I will someday. I guess I'll be updating Firefox in the meantime though.
