Firefox 'nightly' javascript is now screaming fast!

Post by rick752 » Sat Mar 01, 2008 1:50 am

Firefox3 'nightly' now blows away the competition in javascript processing speed (including Opera). IE is a light-year behind: ... s-a-boost/

For everyone who may have thought that Firefox was getting a bit bloated and slow.
Nice to see that the developers are getting back to 'streamlining' again 8)

Those are just trolls looking for attention.

If you want something that screams try a PGO build: :)

Whats the difference between JavaScript and VBScript? Alright, I have selft taught myself html and can write it in xhtml format if need be. Anyways I was wondering about javascript and vbscript. Whats the difference? Is vbscript coded anything like Visual baisc because I just finished taking a class on the VB programming language. Also can it perfrom the same actions as javascript. And my final question, should I learn css before I go about learning vb/javascript?
