Hi Mehul ;

Thanks for this interview, hopefully IE will eventually get some snappiness with its version 9.

IE9 Acid results look still average though (55/100)...

Flying Images speed demo on my PC:

IE8.0.6001.18828: 3 FPS

Opera 10.10: from 58 to 64 FPS

Chrome 4.1.249.1042: 3 FPS

Firefox 3.6.2: from 44 up to 62 FPS

@Marc,

Thanks. The preview is probably not optimized yet. I'm excited about it because it looks like we'll have good competition among browsers again.
